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.

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) 1-year grants, with a start date of June 1, 2019.
