COVID19 Update: The Trustees of the HIV Research Trust are closely monitoring the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the current uncertainty surrounding how university courses will run next year, access to laboratories, and the level of international travel involved in HIVRT scholarships, the Trustees have taken the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 Scholarships indefinitely. This decision has been made to ensure the safety of HIVRT scholars. A decision will be made later in 2020 as to if and when the 2021 scholarships will take place, and any subsequent submission dates will be advertised here.
For ease of communication with all those who wish to apply, applications are via a web-based program. You can find more details in the Guidance Notes.
Complete applications are assessed independently and judged by the quality of the proposal with respect to the science, training to be received and value of the programme to the home institution. Once this assessment has been made the successful scholars are chosen.
This selection is completed at the beginning of of December with successful scholars being informed by the end of the year. Detailed information on the application process can be found in the Guidance Notes accompanying this page. Please note that there are more applicants than can be funded, so adherence to the guidance is essential for the application to be considered.
This is for guidance only and should not be used to make your final application.
