Fogarty International Center invites applications for up to three years of support for the creation of new, multidisciplinary programs that will foster Global Health research and teaching within and between institutions, to be called Framework Programs for Global Health. The goals of these Programs will be to encourage greater involvement of NIH-funded researchers in Global Health, to facilitate greater collaboration and interactions among Global Health research and training programs at domestic and foreign sites, to bring new participants into the Global Health discussion, and to engage the next generation of scientists and health workers to choose careers in Global Health. Two core activities will be to create an administrative framework to bring multiple schools (engineering, business, chemistry, biology, communication, public health, medicine, environmental studies, and others) together on the topic of Global Health and to develop multidisciplinary!
Global Health curricula at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Each program should leverage and enhance currently funded Global Health projects at the institution, supported by NIH and other sponsors, as well as encourage new training opportunities, collaborations and research areas. To ensure that institutions support the Framework at the highest level, letters from the University President, Provost, or other Institutional Director will be required. The Fogarty International Center anticipates funding eight to ten new awards (Framework awards and planning grants) in FY05.
