CDC Foundation Offers HIV Prevention Fellowship for Community Leaders
Deadline: May 1, 2003

The Price Fellowships for HIV Prevention Leadership program annually provides three U.S. nongovernmental organization leaders with the opportunity to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, and, through interaction with CDC scientists and health professionals, learn about HIV prevention at the national level. The purpose of the program, which is administered by the CDC Foundation ( ), is to build relationships between government organizations and NGOs, resulting in a more effective delivery of HIV/AIDS prevention programs than these organizations can achieve alone.

The month-long program is designed for persons currently working in a leadership position (either paid or volunteer) with a not-for-profit, nongovernmental organization (NGO) in the United States or its territories. Applicants should be persons who have a strong knowledge of, and commitment to, HIV prevention. Preferably, applicants will have worked for a minimum of two years in HIV prevention with an NGO and have an understanding of HIV/AIDS prevention issues at the local and state level. Applicants involved in HIV/AIDS prevention at the national level are also eligible to apply. Applicants affiliated with a not-for-profit educational institution are eligible to apply if they are involved in community HIV primary prevention programs.

Fellowships will be awarded for a four-week period during the month of August. The CDC Foundation will reimburse fellows’ respective agencies up to $4,000 and will also provide per diem expenses for thirty days and round-trip air travel expenses to Atlanta.

See the CDC Foundation Web site for complete application guidelines.
