Program Overview

The Fogarty International Research Collaboration Award (FIRCA) has been terminated. The program fostered international research partnerships between NIH-supported scientists and their collaborators in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). FIRCA aims to benefit the research interests of both collaborators while increasing and enhancing research capacity at the LMIC site.
