The UW/FHCRC CFAR is delighted to present this year's expanded Emerging Opportunity Grants (EOGs). The purpose is to provide funding for time-sensitive HIV/AIDS-related 1) research projects, or 2) infrastructure to build capacity for CFAR HIV research activities, or 3) faculty recruitment. Please note that this year we've expanded the EOG scope to include not only research, but also infrastructure and faculty recruitment - a change over previous years.
An electronic version of this RFA is available here [104K, PDF]. 
We welcome proposals that will take advantage of recent developments in the HIV/AIDS field, new technologies, or provide an important new resource, technology, or area of expertise to our CFAR HIV/AIDS research community. Grants provided for research projects are intended for the testing of hypotheses, and to generate sufficient data for subsequent applications for other funds. Proposals for infrastructure and faculty recruitment must show clear benefit to the larger CFAR research community.
Up to $25,000 direct costs per award, for a maximum of one year.
Types of Projects
We are offering funding for three types of projects:
- HIV/AIDS-related research projects
- Infrastructure: proposals could include facility renovation or purchase of supplies or equipment
- Faculty recruitment: proposals must benefit our CFAR research community and can pay for salary and benefits, and recruitment and relocation expenses.
All potential applicants need approval in order to apply, and should send a very brief (a few sentences) summary of their project and a justification of why it is time sensitive and potentially high impact to firstname.lastname@example.org  by Wednesday, December 18.
