The Global Infectious Disease Research Administration Development Award for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions (G11 Clinical Trial Not Allowed) funding program from the National Institutes of Health supports research institutions in low- to middle-income countries (LMIC) by providing senior administrators from these institutions with advanced training in the management of NIH grants. The overall intent of the initiative is to support the training of senior administrators and empower them to serve as institutional grants management leaders; provide them with access to good business practices for managing awards; assist the administrative staff in developing and implementing standard operating procedures for tracking grant expenditures, complying with NIH funding policies; and assist or train other administrators in the local area. These opportunities would be provided in the form of grants to “train-the-trainer” by sponsoring grants administration training for senior foreign business officials to receive hands-on training at US institutions. Up to two senior administrators from the LMIC institution will receive training at a US host institution for up to 1 month during the award period (2 weeks in the first year and 2 weeks in the second year), as well as attend either a NIH regional workshop on program funding and grants administration, or a NIAID post-award grants policy and management training event. The FOA will also support up to two senior administrators from the LMIC institution for five days of in-house training with the Grants Management Program (GMP) at NIAID in Rockville, MD. This training will allow GMP staff to provide customized information about managing NIAID awards, as well as tailored hands-on training based on the needs of the institutions. Eligible organizations must be in an LMIC, as defined by The World Bank.
Application budgets are limited to $100,000 per 18 months in direct costs. Indirect costs for foreign grantees are limited to 8%.
