CFAR Scholar Grant

The Johns Hopkins Center for AIDS Research provides pilot grants to faculty in the Schools of Public Health, Medicine and Nursing to enable and support HIV/AIDS research projects. Junior faculty in other JHU schools are eligible to apply if the proposal meets all other criteria. The primary purpose of these awards is to strengthen the individual’s ability to secure independent NIH research funding with foci on R- and K-series awards.

All proposals must involve collaboration with the Baltimore City Health Department, Maryland State Department of Health or other local community-based organization.

Check out the JHU CFAR Grant Development and Implementation Toolkit - under the QUESTION FORMULATION tab is an ONGOING BALTIMORE BASED RESEARCH section, which contains documents listing and describing current research in the city. You must have JHED logon credentials to access the toolkit.

Funds Available

The budget for the grants is a maximum of $50,000 in direct costs. Indirect costs will be calculated by the CFAR and added at the time of funding. We plan to award up to six (6) one-year grants, with a start date of January 1, 2019.
