Infrastructure awards are designed to build capacity for UW international HIV research activities. The awards generally benefit multiple studies and/or investigators within a single research site. They can be used to renovate facilities and purchase supplies and equipment that contribute to the execution, efficiency and development of research projects.
To be eligible, a PI must be a faculty member at a UW/FHCRC CFAR affiliated international institution (listed here). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about eligibility. Non-UW faculty should partner with a UW faculty member and demonstrate how the project is linked to UW research initiatives.
All applicants are required to be UW/FHCRC CFAR Members. Information about membership can be found at http://depts.washington.edu/cfar/get-involved/cfar-membership or by contacting Michelle Ward (email@example.com).
We encourage applications for items that are not readily purchased on a typical research grant and that promote collaborative and innovative HIV research. Past awards have included a back-up generator at a research clinic, classroom renovations and security improvements, statistical software, IT equipment for distance learning, laboratory equipment and data management supplies. Examples of past awards can be found here.
Direct costs: Up to $10,000 per project. Per revised NIH guidelines, funding for minor alterations and renovations at international sites is now allowable. Funding cannot be applied to new construction, indirect costs/F&A, salary support or study computers.
* Improvements that would support multidisciplinary projects are encouraged and are defined as improving infrastructure for 2 or more investigators that have differing areas of expertise or different research focuses.
All recipients must provide a one-page report detailing how their grant was applied. Photographs of the item in use are appreciated. All manuscripts or publications resulting from CFAR International Core support should acknowledge CFAR. See here for suggested wording.
Submit application on the International Infrastructure application form (below) by November 19, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual application sections may be expanded, but the overall proposal should not be more than 3 pages in length.
