In the interest of increasing diversity and representation of minority scholars in HIV research, the Third Coast CFAR has identified local HIV-focused grants that appear eligible to apply for diversity supplements from the NIH. Supplement awards enhance the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting students, post-doctorates, and faculty-level investigators from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research. The CFAR is particularly interested in supporting applications that will support new or early-stage investigators (ESI). Established principal investigators and ESIs are encouraged to contact the CFAR to request match-making or support for the application process. View additional resources below:
