CHIP Award

The UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Executive Program will present one Community Healthcare Improvement Project (CHIP) Award in 2014. Download an application here! This year, all graduates of the 2002 - 2012 classes will be eligible to apply.  The winner will be selected by the Award Committee from the pool of submitted applications.  The award is $5,000, providing $3,000 to the organization and $2,000 to the individual. 

New CHIPs, as well as those designed at UCLA, will be eligible for consideration, however; only one application per alumni per cycle is permitted. If you entered previous CHIP Award competitions and did not win, you may resubmit the same CHIP provided it is updated, or any other CHIP you may have undertaken since your graduation from the program. Applications will be judged on the CHIP's creativity and originality, adherence of the CHIP structure, deployment of appropriate evaluation methodology, and a demonstration of significant outcomes in one or more of these areas: lower cost, improved quality, or increased access to healthcare.

If you have any questions, please contact Diana Hernandez at (310) 794-9559 or email
