Global Research Initiative Program for New Foreign Investigators

Status: Closed

Program Overview

The Global Research Initiative Program for New Foreign Investigators (GRIP) promotes productive development of foreign investigators from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), defined by World Bank Country Classifications, trained in the U.S. or in their home countries through an eligible NIH funded research or research training grant or award.

The goal of this initiative is to provide funding opportunities upon return home for the increasing pool of foreign biomedical and behavioral scientists, clinical investigators, nurses, and other health professionals with state-of-the-art knowledge of research methods to advance critical issues in global health when they return home. Upon completion of their research experiences using this grant mechanism, developing country participants are expected to continue to pursue independent and productive careers, including expert training and consultation and/or research of biomedical issues within their home institutions.
