Additional Information on Eligibility
Foreign institutions are eligible to apply. Faith-based or community-based organizations can apply. The Foreign Collaborator must be at an institution in a developing country defined by the World Bank according to Gross National Income per capita (GNI per capita) as low-income, lower-middle income, and upper-middle income (see:,,contentMDK:20421402~menuPK:64133156~pagePK:64133150~piPK:64133175~theSitePK:239419,00.htmlor Foreign institutions may only apply if they meet the eligibility requirements for foreign collaborating institutions listed above and the PD/PI and Collaborating Investigators meet the criteria listed below in Section 1.B., Eligible Individuals. Occasionally, scientific opportunities may arise that warrant a formal collaborative effort between the PD/PI and individuals from more than one country. Such applications may be considered only after consultation with and pre-approval by the FIC program staff. Eligible Parent Grants: The following NIH research project grants that will be active and funded at the start of the proposed FIRCA budget period are eligible as parent grants: R01, R37 (MERIT), P01, or U01. PDs/PIs of sub-projects of a program project (P01) or cooperative agreement (U01 and U19) are eligible. Other R, P, and U mechanisms, or significant sub-projects within these mechanisms, will be considered on a case-by-case basis, after consultation with, and pre-approval by, the FIC Program Officer. For example, if an active R21 or R03 is for research in the proposed FIRCA collaborating country, it may be allowed as a parent grant upon pre-approval of the FIRCA Program Director. Grants reviewed under FIC FOA Requests for Applications, but awarded by agencies outside of NIH, may be eligible as parent grants. Such grants must be pre-approved as parent grants by the FIRCA Program Officer prior to application. See annoucement for additional information
