The International AIDS Society (IAS) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) are proud to announce a new round of their fellowship programme encouraging HIV and Drug Use. In 2014, the programme will be expanded with one additional fellowship thanks to the support of the French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis (ANRS). The name of the programme will be changed to HIV and Drug Use Research Fellowship to reflect this new partnership.

The fellowship programme is awarded as a stipend of US$75,000 in two categories: to a junior scientist for 18 months of post-doctoral training; and to a well-established HIV or drug use researcher for eight months of professional development training. Both are hosted by leading institutes excelling in HIV-related drug use research. Applications from a wide range of disciplines will be accepted.

The 2014 round will be open for applicants from 8 December 2013 to 10 February 2014 (midnight CET). Mentors must submit their statement of support by 18 February 2014 (midnight CET).

The IAS Research Promotion Department is hosting two webinars to provide more information about the upcoming HIV and Drug Use Research Fellowship application round. The webinars will be held on Tuesday, 3 December, at 16:00 GMT and Wednesday, 4 December, at 7:00 GMT.
