The Sub-Saharan African Network for TB/HIV Research Excellence (SANTHE) provides applications from investigators for 1-year collaborative grants for research projects that address critical challenges to African capacity in HIV and/or TB clinical, social/behavioural, and biomedical science. Priority will be given to projects that establish new collaborations that add value to existing skills and initiate a programme of study that is likely to be competitive for external funding. Project leadership must include at least one investigator who is based at a *SANTHE site.
We are now accepting letters of intent which should follow the one-page NIH format: background, study aims and hypotheses, and significance; and be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
These will be reviewed within two weeks following closure date, and selected candidates will be invited for full SANTHE proposal submission (which will be due August 31).
CLOSING DEADLINE FOR LETTERS OF INTENT: 31 JULY 2017
Up to $50,000 USD in direct costs is available to support each project. Allowable project expenses include salaries or stipends, travel for research or conference attendance, research materials and supplies, laboratory and office equipment, computer hardware, and software. All equipment must remain at the African site at the close of the project.
Please allow at least a month for your application to be processed and have the following documentation ready for uploading for proposal submission:
