Two New Training Grants Available For Global Research

Two new training grant opportunities are available from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for ID training programs and fellows who want to work on global research in infectious diseases in low- or middle-income countries. The two new opportunities are available through NIH’s John E. Fogarty International Center for Advanced Study in the Health Sciences.

The Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants aim to provide predoctoral and postdoctoral research training opportunities for individuals interested in pursuing research careers in biomedical, behavioral and clinical research. The grants will be awarded to eligible institutions as the primary means of supporting graduate and postdoctoral research training to help ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to assume leadership roles related to global health-related research needs.

The deadline for applications is January 9, 2009. To learn more, please visit

The Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholars (FICRS) Program is designed primarily for students having a strong interest in, and potential for, a career in international health activities and/or clinical research. The FICRS Program offers a one-year clinical research training opportunity for graduate-level U.S. students in the health professions to experience mentored research training at top-ranked NIH-funded research centers in developing countries.

The deadline for applications is December 5, 2008. To learn more, please visit
