Call for Proposals: Surgeon General C. Everett Koop HIV /AIDS Research Grant
Deadline: June 1, 2013
Because of his courageous efforts to educate the public about HIV/AIDS, Dr. C. Everett Koop became one of the most revered Surgeon Generals, receiving many awards including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and over 50 honorary doctorates.
The Rural Center for AIDS/STD Prevention (RCAP) is headquartered at Indiana University (IU) and is a joint project of IU, University of Kentucky, and University of Wyoming. The Surgeon General C. Everett Koop HIV/AIDS Research Grant is an endowed grant to support doctoral student research related to HIV/AIDS prevention in rural America. As an endowed grant, these grants will be awarded annually in perpetuity to encourage and support research by emerging investigators from a wide range of disciplines.
Applicants must be registered as full time doctoral students at accredited universities in the United States. The proposed study must be pre-dissertation or dissertation research, and must be a new proposed study.
The focus of the proposed research must be on issues directly related to HIV/AIDS prevention in rural or low-prevalence areas in the United States.

The COS Papers Invited database is an especially good resource for graduate students who are looking for conferences to present their work, and attend for networking purposes. The database consists of detailed information and deadlines about calls for papers for forthcoming conferences and special issues of scholarly journals. These calls for papers are issued by professional bodies, journal editors and other conference organizers in all disciplines and from all over the world. Thus, the database serves as an alerting service for researchers, scholars, and students that are seeking opportunities to present and publish their research. Approximately 10,000 conferences are listed each year along with 1,200-1,500 special issues.
Note: The databases previously known as “Community of Science” have evolved into being part of the ProQuest family; while they are not called CoS anymore, they can still be found on Drexel Library’s website under that name.
