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. Applications will start to be reviewed on January 4, 2016.

During the 2-year fellowship, all Scholars will:

  • Participate in two consecutive Summer Institutes;
  • 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 to New Haven; a stipend for living expenses (Fellows who are funded through an NIH or Foundation institutional training grants are not eligible for the stipend but may receive a per diem food allowance); and, fully-subsidized accommodations.

The online application for this fellowship is now available. However, we encourage you to download Eligibility Criteria and Application Requirements first before proceeding.
