Visiting Professor Program
Since 1997, the CAPS Visiting Professor (VP) program has provided intensive training and mentoring to support the development of early-career researchers across the United States. Each year a small number of scientists are selected to participate in the program. The VP Program is designed to assist investigators already conducting HIV-prevention research with minority communities in the United States to improve their programs of research and obtain additional funding for their work. Participants will:
- Spend six weeks in San Francisco for three summers.
- Receive round-trip airfare to San Francisco and a monthly stipend during the summer program.
- Receive $20,000 to conduct an Applied Research Experience.
- Prepare an NIH grant proposal.
- Continue to develop a research program with mentoring by UCSF faculty researchers.
Our program application for the summer 2021 program has closed. Interested prospective applicants should return in the fall for an update on applications for the summer of 2022. In the meantime, you may visit our application pages, beginning with information about who is eligible for the program.
Help us achieve our mission of assisting early-career investigators conducting HIV-prevention research with ethnic and racial minority communities to improve their programs of research and obtain additional funding for their work. Learn more about donating to this program.
