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 scholarships, 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 will be open from 7 September until 26 October.
For ease of communication with all the nations that might be involved, application is web and email based.
The Applications are assessed independently and judged by the quality of the proposal with respect to the science, the training to be received and the value of the programme to the home institution.
Once the applications have been received they will be independently reviewed.
Successful applicants will be informed early the following year.
Applications for scholarships are requested annually from early September to late October.
