Program Description: Racial and ethnic diversity among HIV researchers is at a low and
undesirable level. The Fostering Diversity in HIV Research Program is supported by the
National Institutes of Health (R25MH119857) and designed to help overcome some of the
barriers underrepresented in medicine/public health (URiM) trainees face, thus advancing their
careers and enriching scientific discovery. The program provides structured mentoring to create
a welcoming environment for URM trainees that promotes rigorous research. It involves formal
didactics and community practice events over the course of one year, as well as high-quality
mentoring tailored to each individual trainee and their stage of training. Up to $10,000 in funding
is available to support research, as well as enable conference attendance, travel (if needed and
possible), and open-access manuscript publication.
