Grant applications are welcome from international investigators and their CFAR colleagues. In general, investigators and/or the proposed research must be based in a country where the per-capita gross domestic product is less than $20,000 USD per year.
Our International Pilot grants are restricted to seven countries because we are establishing long-term professional relationships between UC San Diego and the investigators' institutions. Preference will be given to supporting projects based in Mexico and Mozambique, and funds are also available to support meritorious projects in Brazil, India, Kenya, South Africa, or Zimbabwe.
Investigators in these seven countries may also apply for our Visiting Researchers grants.
