  • In this interactive two-day workshop, you will learn the steps of developing a competitive grant proposal in health behavior, including identifying a fundable idea, determining which funders are the most likely to fund your idea, writing a winning grant application, and responding to agency feedback.
  • The workshop will be facilitated by NIH representatives and senior level health behavior researchers from UConn with stellar records of obtaining external funding.
  • Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to apply for a year-long mentorship by a senior level health behavior researcher! (To qualify for the mentorship, workshop attendance is mandatory.)


  • You must be a faculty member at UConn-Storrs, UConn Health, or one of the branch campuses (graduate students are NOT eligible).
  • You must have an interest in conducting research in health behavior or health behavior change.
  • This workshop is targeting faculty members who have never been awarded a large external grant of greater than $100,000 per year (the total award across all years of the grant can exceed $100,000 but the per year award must be no more than $100,000). Faculty members who have received R21 and/or K01 awards are eligible to apply.
