The HIV Research Trust is a charitable foundation that provides financial support for researchers in resource – poor countries working in the field of HIV infection. The support is in the form of Scholarships awarded annually. These are designed for the research worker to travel to another research unit to learn techniques that will be of value when he or she returns. All aspects of research are eligible including clinical care, epidemiology, psychological and societal aspects, basic and applied biology. The grants, which are usually for a few months duration, cover travel, living expenses and consumables. They are awarded competitively based on a peer-review process.
Applications for HIV Research Trust Scholarships have been extended to November 14. Click here for more details.
