Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program

The Fogarty International Center (FIC) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed this program to address research training needs related to infectious diseases that are predominantly endemic in or impact upon people living in developing countries.

Individuals eligible to become Principal Investigators:

  • Developing country applicants should apply in collaboration with U.S. institutions capable of enhancing their proposed training opportunities.
  • Applicants must have a strong infectious disease research program in the scientific area proposed for research training and the requisite faculty and facilities to carry out the proposed training activities.
  • Applicants must be designated as the Principal Investigator of at least one active infectious disease research grant (with at least 18 months of support remaining at the time of application), from the NIH or other national or international research support organization, directly relevant to the research training proposed.
  • Priority will be given to applicants with NIH research grants with foreign components at the collaborating developing country institution or to foreign developing country applicants directly supported by NIH research awards.
