Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS)

The REIDS Fellowship opportunities are for those currently employed as early-career faculty or as post-doctoral researchers. REIDS exists to meet the needs of scholars who are underrepresented in the field of HIV research. Recognizing the importance of quality mentorship and access to practical experience in setting the trajectory for productivity and success of new investigators, Scholars enroll in a 4-week Summer Institute and online monthly meetings throughout the year focused on research education, training, professional development and mentoring that addresses structural and individual barriers to advancement of underrepresented groups in community-based implementation science research to reduce and prevent HIV. Review of applications will begin on February 1, 2018.

During the 2-year fellowship, all Scholars will:

  • Participate in two consecutive Summer Institutes (2018 Institute June 11 – July 6);
  • Participate in online monthly fellowship meetings;
  • Receive sustained mentorship and applied learning experiences;
  • Be supported to write collaborative HIV proposals; and,
  • Be able to apply for up to $20,000 in pilot funding for projects that address one of the several HIV inequities experienced within communities of color.

Fellows receive money for travel and living expenses.
