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.
DEADLINES: Applications are accepted for review twice per CFAR fiscal year: on November 1 (New applications only) and May 1 (Revised applications only).
RFA: The current CFAR03 version is rev. 7/11/12.
The purpose of the CFAR fiscal YR14 supplemental RFA is to solicit CFAR03 applications that complement the goals of one or more of the CFAR Scientific Working Groups (SWG) listed below.
Applications submitted under this supplement RFA must be pre-approved for submission by one of the listed SWGs. Information about each SWG may be found on the CFAR website:
• HIV Reservoirs and Eradication SWG,
• NeuroAIDS SWG,
• Non-Human Primate Models of HIV Pathogenesis and Vaccines SWG.
RFA: The current CFAR03 Supplemental RFA version is rev. 7/11/12.
The Micro Grants mechanism is intended to remove obstacles to HIV/AIDS research productivity or career advancement by providing small but crucial resources that cannot easily or immediately be obtained through other funding mechanisms.
This program provides reimbursement or direct purchases of up to $2,000 per approved request. Applications have a rolling deadline.
ELIGIBILITY: Any CFAR member who is eligible to apply for NIH funding as a PI.
RFA: The current CFAR Micro Grant PA version is rev. 7/30/12.
The Science Poster program is intended to assist CFAR members optimize the impact of their research results in two ways:
1) By providing training in the design of scientific posters that will attract attention, be easy to scan, efficiently summarize the research, and stimulate interest in the poster’s content. Graduates of the poster design tutorial are eligible to receive subsidized printing as a graduation gift.
2) By providing a limited amount of funding for the printing of posters that will assist early career HIV/AIDS investigators in disseminating the results of their unfunded or CFAR-funded HIV research.
RFA: The current CFAR Science Poster PA version is rev. 7/30/12.
As funds become available, the NIH provides the CFAR network with opportunities to apply for competitive supplements to the CFAR base grant. All Emory CFAR investigators are eligible to apply as project directors for NIH CFAR supplements. A notice will be sent to the CFAR Member listserv each time the NIH CFAR announces a call for administrative supplement applications.
The National CFAR occasionally forwards information about funding opportunities they feel will be of interest to CFAR members. We publish a list of these FOAs in the CFAR Network News, on our website, and through our various listservs.
