Now Accepting Applications for 2021 CHAS Seed Grants: The Center for Health Administration Studies (CHAS) at the School of Social Service Administration is proud to offer our Seed Grant program which aims to support promising health services and policy research projects at the University of Chicago. Seed Grants provide modest research funding for a limited time (usually two years) to enable eligible investigators to explore the feasibility of a concept related to the mission of the Center and generate sufficient data to pursue it through other funding mechanisms. Learn more about the Seed Grant program by visiting fundingopportunities.uchicago.edu. Applications will be accepted now through Friday, April 30th, 2021.
