Description: UConn’s Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and Policy (InCHIP) offers seed grants for faculty at UConn Storrs, UConn Health, and the regional campuses who are InCHIP Network Members. This mechanism is designed to fund pilot work that will directly support a future external grant application in the area of human health, consistent with InCHIP’s mission. External grants that emerge from InCHIP funded seed grants must be submitted through InCHIP or UConn Health. InCHIP anticipates funding 4 to 5 pilot projects this academic year.

Fall semester deadline: November 17, 2023 at 11:59pm.
Spring semester deadline: April 19, 2024 at 11:59pm.

InCHIP Rolling Seed Grants to Develop Interdisciplinary Research Teams

Deadline: The application cycle has closed. Check back in the 2023 fall semester for more information.
Purpose: These grants provide funds to support the development of interdisciplinary research teams with high potential for securing external funding through activities such as (but not limited to) a one-day workshop or series of structured meetings to develop a research agenda and identify team leaders, conduct small pilot studies, or publish a high-impact literature review to establish a team’s expertise in a new area. Any activity that has the potential to prepare multidisciplinary teams to submit external grant applications that are consistent with the mission of InCHIP will be considered. Successful teams should be cross-department (at least 2 departments) and ideally cross-college (at least 2 colleges) or cross-campus (team members from UConn and UConn Health) and be comprised of researchers with a range of seniority and experience.
