Grants for full research training programs are awarded to U.S. institutions with strong HIV- related research training experience and with HIV-related research collaborations with institutions in low- and middle- income countries. The grantees, in partnership with their collaborating institutions, identify foreign health scientists, clinicians, and allied health workers from the collaborating countries to participate in their joint research training programs.
Trainees shall be individuals involved in or expected to be involved in HIV-related research activities in their home country. Decisions about whom to accept for training are made by the directors of the grants. All directors have developed collaborative activities with specific countries. Please contact the relevant director of the AITRP award for country-specific information, necessary qualifications, eligibility, and application procedures.
