Fogarty's International Research Scientist Development
Award helps establish global health careers for promising
early-career researchers from the U.S.
Fogarty plans to provide up to $3.3 million over five years to support five additional early-career researchers through the International Research Scientist Development Award (IRSDA). These NIH Career Development Awards - also known as K awards - allow recipients to carve out time for research and career development activities as they are establishing their independent research careers in global health.
Since 1999, IRSDA's K01 awards have supported early-career U.S. researchers from across health-related disciplines. Grantees spend at least half their time conducting research at institutions based in a low- or middle-income country (LMIC). The companion Fogarty program, the Emerging Global Leader Award, offers similar support for LMIC scientists.
