InCHIP Grant Writing Boot Camp Begins 9/18

We are happy to announce that InCHIP’s Training and Development Core will be holding a year-long Grant Writing Boot Camp. The Boot Camp will begin on Monday, September 18th from 12-1PM and will consist of 10 sessions across the academic year.

All ten sessions will take place on Mondays from 12-1PM on the following dates:

Fall Semester

  • 9/18
  • 10/2
  • 10/16
  • 10/30
  • 12/4

Spring Semester

  • 1/29
  • 2/12
  • 3/5
  • Individual Meetings*
  • 4/9

*In the interim between 3/5 and 4/9 we will hold meetings between participants and grant writing experts who will give them feedback on their proposal as it stands at that point.

Who should attend: This series is designed for faculty who conduct health-related research. Faculty who want to pursue external funding and who are committed to writing a grant proposal during this academic year are encouraged to participate.

What to expect: With structured guidance, over the course of the year you will write the various sections of your grant and receive feedback from fellow participants and InCHIP investigators with grant writing expertise. By the end of the 10-session Boot Camp, you will have a solid grant proposal that is ready to be submitted to an external agency.

Note: If you have grant writing experience and would be interested in participating as a reviewer, please contact (grace.morris@uconn.edu) or Amy Gorin (amy.gorin@uconn.edu).

UConn CSCH Encore Conference – Details Announced (Monday, September 18, 2017)

 

Dear InCHIP Affiliates,

The first annual UConn Collaboratory on School and Child Health Encore Conference will be held at the Lyceum Conference Center in Hartford on Monday, September 18, 2017, from 4-6 p.m.

The CSCH Encore conference provides an opportunity for participants to learn about work related to school and/or child health that affiliates have presented previously at an external conference. The event will include a poster “encore” session (meaning presenters share work they have already presented in another setting) and active networking. There will be a special opportunity to participate in an on-the-spot seed grant competition for up to $8,000. Refreshments will be provided.

The event is open to all people that are CSCH affiliates (faculty, postdocs, students, community partners) by the time of the event. If you plan to attend, please complete this registration form no later than Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

If you would like to submit a poster presentation, you must complete the registration form and indicate that you would like to present a poster by the due date. We have up to 40 spaces available for posters, which will be accepted on a first come basis. Posters must be no larger than 24” (height) by 36” (width).

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Helene
