Doctoral Students Leadership Development Opportunity

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has started a new leadership development opportunity for full-time doctoral students from underrepresented populations or historically disadvantaged backgrounds training to be researchers in many fields and interested in health policy research. The goal of the program is to create a large cadre of diverse scholars whose research, connections, and leadership will inform and influence policy toward a “Culture of Health.”  For more information on the program, who is eligible, and how to apply, please visit www.healthpolicyresearch-scholars.org.
