Applicants are required to have established a relationship with their CFAR Mentor and their Collaborating Partner prior to submission of the Full Proposal. Documentation, in the form of a letter of support from the CFAR Mentor and the Collaborating Partner, must be submitted with the application packet.  As part of the funded research plan, CFAR Mentors and Collaborating Partners will be responsible for helping Scholars develop and apply culturally responsive HIV/AIDS research skills that will be used to expand HIV-related knowledge and disseminate information through organizations and institutions that work with Latino/Hispanic populations. Scholar applicants are also required to include a draft Mentoring Plan with their application.
