CHIA Timeline 2017 V1 2018 CHIA Grant Cycle Timeline

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Community Health Innovation Awards (CHIA) Mentoring Program. CHIA mentors play an invaluable role in our program, championing applicants through the critical stages of project idea development and presentation preparation.

As a CHIA mentor, you will:

  • Serve as a sounding board to help refine an applicant’s ideas
  • Provide a fresh set of eyes for an applicant’s written proposal
  • Help applicants strategize on their live presentation

Mentor Matching Questionnaire FormAs a CHIA mentor, you will not:

  • Write or re-write applicants’ proposals
  • Develop PowerPoint presentations
  • Move project ideas in a different direction than the applicant intends
  • Impose an agenda
  • Tell the grantee applicant what to do

CHIA mentors are also asked to attend the CHIA Refinement Workshop (see Average Grant Cycle Timeline for when this falls in the CHIA process). We also ask that you offer additional times to be available as needed to support your matched CHIA applicant.

To begin, please fill out this questionnaire. Our goal is to get to know you better to make the best match between you and a CHIA applicant.
