Seed Grants and Awards


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.

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).

Important Dates to Remember for all Seed Grants:

  • October 2nd, 2015              Letters of Intent Due
  • November 20th, 2015        Full Proposals Due

Please see the individual FOA for the grant to which you are applying for a full list of deadlines.
