The HIV Research Trust aims to build on the success of the scholarships by establishing an informal alumnus of scholars.
This will help us learn how to improve our scholarships and adapt them for the changing needs of young investigators. The experience of past scholars will assist us in guiding future applicants and help the Trust in making decisions about funding that will lead to productive science.
We propose to keep in regular contact with scholars to understand how the scholarships have helped them and what improvements they might suggest. We should also like to learn of any publications that have resulted from the award.
We hope that successful scholars will agree to become alumni and help the careers of scientists working in resource-limited settings. We shall invite each scholar to join at the time when the award is made.
