The Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholars Program is designed to build the nation's capacity for research, leadership and action to address the broad range of factors affecting the health of populations. To be eligible, scholars must have completed their doctoral training by the time of entry into the program (August 2006) in one of a variety of disciplines, ranging from the behavioral and social sciences to the biological and natural sciences and health professions; have significant research experience; be able to clearly connect their research interests to substantive population health concerns; and be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. Up to eighteen scholars will be selected for two-year appointments that will begin in the fall semester of 2006. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $77,000 in year one and $80,000 in year two. Each year the program supports up to 18 outstanding individuals who have completed doctoral training to engage in an intensive two-year interdisciplinary program in population health at one of six nationally prominent universities.
