Limited Competition: Planning Grant for Fogarty HIV Research Training Program for Low-and Middle-Income Country institutions (D71)
Grant Amount: Application budgets are limited to $28,000 direct costs per year.
The overall goal of the Fogarty International Center (FIC) HIV Research Training Program is to strengthen the human capacity to contribute to the ability of institutions in eligible low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to conduct HIV-related research on the evolving HIV-related epidemics in their country and to compete independently for research funding. See NOT-TW-12-011: Notice of Change in Country Eligibility for Fogarty International Training Grants to ascertain LMIC eligibility.
The Fogarty HIV Research Training Program encourages applications under three different Funding Opportunities Announcements (FOAs). This FOA (D71), encourages planning grant applications to support eligible LMIC institutions to plan and develop an application for a research training program in response to the second FOA (D43) (PAR-13-126). The future research training program is expected to develop and strengthen the scientific leadership and expertise needed to strengthen the research capacity of the LMIC institution to address a specified scientific topic or question. The third FOA (G11) will support applications from U.S. institutions for training in defined research infrastructure areas at LMIC institutions ( PAR-13-215).
This FOA provides support for those eligible LMIC institutions with strong research experience, expertise and resources in various scientific areas to plan their own research training program, in response to D43 FOA, so that they can share their expertise with others. Research training programs, developed and led by LMIC institutions will maximize previous FIC and other NIH research and research training investments in those LMIC institutions, will further strengthen the LMIC institution's research and research training capabilities, and will provide additional and more accessible research training opportunities to others in their own country and in other LMICs.
Applicants are encouraged to refer to the D43 FOA (PAR-13-126) as they prepare their planning grant application in response to this FOA. The planning grant applicant will need to identify the specific scientific topic or question upon which to focus the future research training program, provide rationale for why this topic or question was selected, and propose a plan for developing an application for a research training program at the LMIC institution.
The objectives of the planning grant are:
to solidify collaborative relationships and understandings with all individual and institutional partners for an institutional (organizational) structure that will support the future research training program; to fully assess the existing research and research training capacity for the specified scientific area at the LMIC institution, identify current resources and justify the need for additional research training; to identify the training, staff development, and scientific and administrative resources needed to undertake a training program to bring the LMIC institution to the next level of capacity in the specified scientific topic or question; to identify and engage additional partners needed to fill identified gaps; to define a pool of potential trainees that could be recruited for future research training to identify existing and future research opportunities that can be used to support research training and career development of trainees; and to organize and submit an application in response to D43 FOA.
