UCHC-UCONN STORRS SEED GRANT FUNDING IN CANCER CONTROL

The UConn School of Medicine (UCHC) and UConn Storrs are offering funding opportunities for dual-PI pilot projects in cancer control science that will be carried out collaboratively by investigators from each campus. This funding opportunity is sponsored by UCHC, CHIP, and the Office of the Vice President for Research.

CHIP SEED GRANTS

CHIP has several annual competitions for seed grants. The purpose of these competitions is to provide pilot and seed grant resources to investigators to stimulate new research in health behavior change at UConn of the type and quality likely to lead to additional external funding.

NOTE:  An important component of the CHIP research funding competitions is mentoring. All proposals submitted receive mentoring reviews from the review panel that supply guidance in how to improve the proposal for subsequent external review (whether the project is funded by CHIP, or not).

CHIP PRE-SUBMISSION GRANT REVIEWS

CHIP offers pre-submission grant reviews for individuals planning to submit external grants through CHIP. This provides investigators with the opportunity for an internal review by one or more experienced CHIP investigators or others outside CHIP, with extensive experience in successful grant writing. In addition to content, reviews of statistics, or methodology, can be performed through this mechanism.
