CIPHER Grant Programme 2018/2019 round : The Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER) launched a new round of research grants for mentored early-stage investigators to advance operational science in paediatric HIVand fill critical knowledge gaps that impede paediatric HIV diagnosis, treatment and service delivery in resource-limited settings. The CIPHER Grant Programme directly supports the development of early-stage investigators, awarding up to US$150,000 for up to two years to address research gaps in paediatric and adolescent HIV in resource-limited settings. This is a unique ‘stepping up’ opportunity, designed to give investigators the experience they need to compete for larger funding. The grants are resulting in personal and career development, capacity building on the ground, and research that informs critical management and care and leads to policy change.
The call for proposals is now open. The deadline to submit a research project is 26 October 2018, at 18:00 CET, through CIPHER’s online submission system.
Early-stage investigators, who have completed their terminal research degree within the past 10 years and who would serve, for the first time, as the primary principal investigator for a non-training research grant, are eligible to apply.
Awards will be funded up to US$150,000 for two years. You can find more information on the eligibility and selection criteria in the Call for Letter of Intent.
