The NIH AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP) supports innovative, collaborative training programs that would contribute to the long-term goal of building sustainable research capacity in HIV/AIDS and HIV-related conditions at institutions with which they have ongoing research collaborations, in low- and middle-income countries.  These research-training programs will strengthen scientific knowledge and skills to enhance prevention of, and treatment and care for, HIV/AIDS and HIV-related conditions in these countries.

The applicants should describe research-training programs that provide a variety of short-, medium- and long-term training opportunities for participants from their proposed collaborating foreign institution in low- and middle-income countries (referred to as foreign collaborating institutions in this PA) within the context of ongoing research collaborations. Training may occur either in the US or at the foreign collaborating institution; however, applicants are strongly encouraged to provide support and mentoring for trainees to conduct the research related to their training in their country to the greatest extent possible. Applicants should include a plan that demonstrates the increasing research training options and responsibilities to the collaborating foreign institution during the course of the five-year award. Applicants should present an assessment of the specific needs for HIV/AIDS and HIV-related research training at their foreign collaborating institution(s) and a proposed training plan to address those needs during the course of a five-year award.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, October 7, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and include a synopsis of the proposed training program, identification of collaborators, and a broad outline of the anticipated budget.


Because the nature and scope of the proposed research training will vary from application to application it is anticipated that the size of each award will also vary.  An applicant for an AITRP award may request a project period of up to five years and a budget for direct costs, according to the following guidelines:

  • For re-competing applicants entering their sixteenth or greater year of funding, $695,000 per year in direct costs;
  • For re-competing applicants entering their eleventh year of funding, $556,000 per year in direct costs;
  • For re-competing applicants entering their sixth year of funding, $417,000 per year in direct costs;
  • For new applicants, $278,000 per year in direct costs.
MU Deadline: October 7, 2005
NIH Deadlines:

November 21, 2005 (letters of intent); December 21, 2005 (full application)
