Communicating and Acknowledging Fogarty Funding

Researchers and institutions that have received funding from the Fogarty International Center are required to acknowledge this funding in presentations, papers, posters and press releases.

Communicating project outcomes and Fogarty's support of the research that led to those outcomes contributes to the public's understanding of how Fogarty, and NIH as a whole, support biomedical research. Publicizing research grants creates transparency of funding sources and promotes scientific discoveries made with U.S. government support. With proper citation, publications will be linked from our Fogarty Grantee Publications page.

Requirements for Acknowledging Fogarty-Supported Research

The NIH grants policy statement outlines requirements for acknowledging Federal funding in the following products when describing projects or programs funded in whole or in part with NIH funds:

  • research publications
  • press releases and other public statements
  • other publications or documents about research that is funded by NIH
  • requests for proposals and bid invitations
  • and other documents describing projects or programs funded in whole or in part with Federal money

These types of products must include the following three statements:

  1. A specific acknowledgment of Fogarty grant support, such as:
    • "Research reported in this [publication/press release] was supported by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number [specific NIH grant number(s) in the proper format ]."
    • (If you have more than one grant, only cite the grant(s) that supported the research described in the article or presentation.)
  2. An acknowledgement of the level of NIH funding that indicates:
    1. the percentage and dollar amounts of the total program or project costs financed with Federal money and
    2. the percentage and dollar amount of the total costs financed by nongovernmental sources.
  3. A disclaimer that states:
    • "The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the Fogarty International Center nor the National Institutes of Health."

NIH communicates this requirement to its grantees in the NIH notice of award, and the NIH Grants Policy Statement (Sections 4.2 and 8.2.1).

NIH also encourages grantees who have used or generated HeLa cell whole genome sequence data to acknowledge Henrietta Lacks and her family.

Notifying Fogarty Before Publishing
