amfAR and the University of Pittsburgh are again teaming up to train junior investigators from low- and middle-income countries who are interested in conducting HIV research among gay men, other men who have sex with men, and/or transgender individuals (collectively referred to as “GMT”) in their home countries. Applications for the 2014 amfAR HIV Scholars Program are due October 1, 2013.

Four scholars will be selected to take three graduate-level classes at the Center for LGBT Health Research at the Graduate School of Public Health (“Pitt Public Health”) at the University of Pittsburgh from January through May 2014. The program covers travel costs, visa fees, housing, and provides a modest stipend. It aims to train young investigators to conduct ground-breaking research in HIV among GMT in resource-limited settings and to help them define effective responses to the HIV/AIDS epidemic among GMT populations in their home countries.
