HIV Research Trust is offering its scholarship opportunities that provides funding in resource-limited settings to early-mid career academics working in all fields of HIV infection.

Annual scholarships are awarded to enable researchers to travel across the globe and bring vital research back to their home institutions. Scholarships should enable the candidate to travel to another research unit (host institution) to acquire new skills and techniques which will develop the candidate’s career and add capacity to the department in which they are based (home institution). Examples of skills and techniques that may be acquired include: clinical management; clinical trial experience and practice; data and trial management; statistical expertise; acquisition of laboratory techniques and analyses; cell and molecular biology.
