Supporting early research and community health related projects

Grant Programs

Our Grant Programs are now accepting applications.  

Research Grants

Grants of up to $35,000 each for research projects with exciting potential are available. In addition, the hope is that this initial funding and related research will help applicants qualify for larger grants from other organizations in the future.


Community Health and Social Service Grants

To address an unmet need for grants to support projects focused on community health and social service issues, we have expanded our program to add a segment for Community Health and Social Service Grants.  These grants will be up to $25,000 each for projects addressing important health-related community and social issues impacting society.  Separate guidelines have been provided below for these grants and these applications will be reviewed and evaluated using separate criteria.

Full-time faculty members and personnel at these organizations affiliated with New Jersey Health Foundation are eligible to apply during these grant programs:

  • Kessler Foundation

  • Princeton University

  • New Jersey Institute of Technology

  • Rowan University

  • Rutgers University

  • Stevens Institute of Technology

Deadline for grant applications is November 13, 2020.
