InCHIP is a no-cost “one-stop shop” for training, mentorship, research team development, and grant proposal writing for UConn investigators at all stages of their careers, from graduate students to tenured faculty. We offer a range of services, including workshops, one-on-one consultations, pilot funding, and more.
InCHIP is committed to providing its affiliates with the tools needed to submit an extramural grant application, and if awarded, InCHIP’s Grants Management Team is available to assist InCHIP affiliates in processing the grant through the post-award period. InCHIP also provides services to help affiliates find appropriate grants and funding for their research.
