Honoring Today's Young Leaders for Tomorrow's Improved Health and Health Care

For 40 years the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has been helping Americans lead healthier lives and get the care they need. As one way to mark its 40th year, RWJF has established the Young Leader Awards:  Recognizing Leadership for a Healthier America. Up to 10 awards will be given to young leaders, 40 years of age and under, who offer great promise for leading the way to improved health and health care for all. Each winner will receive an individual award of $40,000.

The Young Leaders Awards will recognize emerging leaders who have demonstrated the characteristics needed to improve health and health care through leadership and innovation. These characteristics—a combination of personal attributes, commitment to health and health care, and successful experience—demonstrate an ability to lead and innovate and they signal the potential to become a greater leader in the coming years. Some of the characteristics a nominee will have demonstrated include:


  • The ability to bring others together to achieve results greater than what a single person could bring about;
  • The capacity to apply learning beyond the boundaries of a single discipline;
  • A history of developing great ideas into products, services or policies that have made a difference in health and health care; and
  • Demonstrable evidence of impact on health and health care that extends beyond an initial group of people to reach additional populations, likely to be sustainable over the decades ahead.
