CHIP Grantsmanship Training Workshop for Health Behavior Researchers

This two-day workshop for junior-level researchers interested in health behavior research was conducted by 7 senior-level health behavior researchers at UConn with stellar records of obtaining external funding along with 3 representatives from National Institutes of Health (NIH). The workshop facilitators provided step-by-step training in how to develop competitive grant proposals, including how to identify a fundable idea, determine which funders are the most likely to fund your idea, write a winning grant application, and respond to agency feedback. The workshop was attended by 35 faculty and other researchers from across the University of Connecticut.

This workshop was sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research.
