About 2017 HIV Research Trust Scholarships for Health Care Professionals in Developing Countries
The HIV Research Trust is a charitable foundation that provides financial support to physicians, nurses, scientists and other health care professionals in early/mid-career who are located in resource-limited settings from low-income and lower-middle-income countries* working in the field of HIV infection. All aspects of research related to HIV infection and its consequences are eligible including clinical care, basic and applied biology, epidemiology, psychological, ethical, economic, educational and societal aspects.
The HIV Research Trust scholarships are awarded each year in open competition. The scholarships are provided to physicians, nurses, scientists and other health care professionals, in particular those who are in the early to mid-stage of their career (for example, undertaking a PhD; a first or second post doc position; or other professionals in an early phase of their research career), working in resource-poor settings from low-income and lower-middle-income countries . The scholarships enable the individual to travel to other centres to acquire skills necessary to conduct their research more effectively when they return to their home institution.

Value of Scholarship
The support is in the form of financial awards allowing the scholar to undertake a placement or course of a few months’ duration intended to cover course or placement costs, travel, consumables and living expenses. The scholarships are awarded competitively based on a peer-review process on an annual basis. They are designed to enable the candidate to travel to another research unit to learn skills and techniques which should develop the candidate’s career and, on return to the home institution, add to the capacity of the department to carry out research related to treatment and prevention.
