National Institutes of Health (NIH) – Emerging Global Leader Award

The NIH Fogarty Emerging Global Leader Award provides research support to a junior faculty researcher from a low- or middle-income country (LMIC) academic or research institution.

This is a mentored research career development experience.  The goal is to help junior researchers begin an independently funded research career. NIH invites scientists from any health related discipline to submit this grant/award application. The proposal will address career development activities and a research project that is relevant to the health priorities of their country.
