International Pilot Project Grants in HIV/AIDS
International Grants » Grants For Developing Nations » Grants for Investigators
International pilot project grants are designed to assist and encourage investigators in developing nations, including Brazil, India, Mexico, Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe to develop new ideas related to HIV/AIDS research.
The intent of these awards is to provide financial support and resource support from the CFAR Cores.
The hope is to permit international investigators to begin research and generate data.
These data should help the investigators submit more substantial and competitive proposals for peer-reviewed research.
Post-doctoral fellows are not eligible to apply, nor may these grants be used to support post-doctoral fellows.
Eligible applicants must be investigators at institutions located in Brazil, India, Mexico, Mozambique, South Africa, or Zimbabwe.
The applicant must have a current or planned collaborative relationship with at least one member of the UCSD CFAR and/or its affiliated institutions (the VA San Diego Healthcare System, the La Jolla Institute of Allergy and Immunology, the Scripps Research Institute, and the Salk Institute).
It is strongly recommended that applicants submit their projects for IRB approval in their host country at the same time as they apply for the international pilot project grant.
Funding is for one year, which will begin after all project approvals are in place.
Successful applicants must write progress reports for the CFAR annual report to the NIH.
Successful applicants must provide to the UCSD CFAR administration a list of publications and peer-reviewed funding resulting from their pilot project awards.
Successful applicants must also cite CFAR support in publications generated with or related to research performed using CFAR international pilot project funds.
A maximum of $40,000 USD will be awarded for each international pilot project grant.
At least 50% of the requested funding must be budgeted for use in the foreign investigator's country.
Deadlines: April 1 and October 1 each year.
