Seed Grants and Awards

InCHIP hosts several annual competitions for seed grants. The purpose of these competitions is to provide pilot and seed grant resources to investigators to stimulate new research in health behavior change at UConn of the type and quality likely to lead to additional external funding.

An important component of the InCHIP research funding competitions is mentoring. All proposals submitted receive mentoring reviews from the review panel that supply guidance in how to improve the proposal for subsequent external review (whether the project is funded by InCHIP, or not).

Currently, there is only one active FY17 InCHIP seed grant program (see below). Please check back at the beginning of the Fall semester for more information on upcoming seed grant competitions.
