How to apply...
The PHS-398 form (revised 04/98) is used to apply for the program. Special application instructions are necessary and are available from the Fogarty International Center, Division of International Training and Research website: http://www.nih.gov/fic/programs.html. Telephone: (301) 496-1653.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
All accepted applications are evaluated by an appropriate initial review group (Study Section). Projects which rank in approximately the upper half of all scored applications receive a final, secondary review by the Fogarty International Center Advisory Board. Staff informs the applicants of the results of the review. If support is contemplated, staff initiates preparation of the awards.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
