The purpose of this program is to foster the next generation of global health scientists by providing trainees, early in their careers, a one-year mentored research training experience in global health at established biomedical and behavioral research institutions and project sites in LMICs. The focus of this FOA is on U.S. and LMIC post-doctoral and U.S. pre-doctoral trainees. In support of the program’s overarching goal to expand access to global health training and research in the U.S., the inclusion of individuals from diverse backgrounds and institutions that have shown a historical commitment to educating students from groups underrepresented in biomedical research at the graduate and post-graduate levels is strongly encouraged. The program also endeavors to help sustain research in the LMICs by strengthening and expanding scientific collaborations between LMIC research institutions and project sites and U.S. partners and to further enhance research capacity by providing financial support and training for early career researchers at those institutions and sites.
Budgetary Requirements: Application budgets are limited to up to $1 million in direct costs/year per award.
