The Public Health Law Research (PHLR) program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will be releasing its fifth call for proposals (CFP) in early June 2013.

Unlike CFPs in the past, this will be a single-round proposal call. Applicants are expected to submit a detailed proposal of no more than 23 pages.

Additionally, only short-term studies will be funded, with up to $1 million available in this round. Studies up to 18 months long will be funded at up to $150,000 each.

As with past CFPs, PHLR will look favorably on multidisciplinary teams that seek to investigate laws broadly impacting public health. To read descriptions of previously funded studies, visit
