Johns Hopkins Announces Funding For 40 Washington, D.C.-Based Events, Projects

Forty convening, research, and teaching endeavors based at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg Center in Washington, D.C., have been selected to receive funding from the university’s Nexus Awards Program over the next year.

The projects span every academic division of the university and include nearly 150 scholars exploring a diversity of topics, from climate resilience and population displacement to generative AI and enhanced learning to mental health and health equity.

This is the second round of funding distributed via the Nexus Awards, a $15 million program designed to support research, teaching, and event programming at the new Hopkins Bloomberg Center, which officially opened in the fall of 2023. Funding for award recipients begins July 1.

“Since last fall, our first class of Nexus winners and their bold ideas have animated our new home in Washington,” JHU President Ron Daniels said. “With this second cohort of Nexus Award winners, we are building on the momentum underway at the Hopkins Bloomberg Center, as faculty from across Johns Hopkins convene policymakers and the public, embark on innovative research, and inspire our students to engage society’s greatest challenges.”
