The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Sports Award recognizes sports teams, athletes, and community-based organizations that use sports to catalyze and sustain changes to make communities healthier places to live, learn, work, and play.
The Foundation will consider applications in the following three categories:
- Category 1: A professional sports team community relations department or foundation based in the United States or Canada.
- Category 2: An individual athlete or professional coach’s foundation based in the United States or Canada.
- Category 3: An organization in the United States or Canada that is an influential leader and model for improving community health through sports.
Up to three awards may be given each year—one in each category outlined above.
Applicants that are not charitable organizations or public entities must apply with an organization that is such an entity and will receive the prize funds. Additional documentation may be requested. Applications are due by May 29, 2019.
