In addition, in a new program jointly sponsored with The Nicholson Foundation, headquartered in Newark, $500,000 will be awarded for Innovation Grants—grants of up to $50,000 each to advance innovative ideas that move discoveries toward commercialization.
“Our collaboration with The Nicholson Foundation is a wonderful illustration of major not-for profits working together to leverage resources that strengthen programs of mutual interest,” explained George F. Heinrich, M.D., vice chair and CEO of New Jersey Health Foundation. Faculty and personnel at organizations affiliated with New Jersey Health Foundation are eligible to apply for the grants. Those organizations are: Kessler Foundation, Princeton University, Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology.
“There is an abundance of outstanding work being done by scientists and others throughout the state of New Jersey,” noted Dr. Heinrich. “We are delighted to be able to advance this research and technology and our New Jersey Health Foundation mission by supporting potentially breakthrough science at these prestigious organizations. We are also extremely gratified that The Nicholson Foundation has joined us in this effort.”
