Funding Opportunities

• CFAR03

The CFAR03 mechanism is modeled on the NIH R03 program and is intended to provide support for research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources.

The purpose of the CFAR03 mechanism is to help junior faculty and investigators who are new to AIDS prepare to submit a competitive research application to NIH.

Funding for the CFAR03 mechanism comes from NIH and from collaboration with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Winship Cancer Institute, the Atlanta Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and the Morehouse School of Medicine.

Applications are accepted for review twice per CFAR fiscal year:
