If you want to learn more about the SD CFAR and the International Core, please view some of our videos:

  • Our introductory video includes 2019 due dates but is otherwise a good description of the SD CFAR and services available to you. 
  • Finding an SD CFAR collaborator can be challenging, yet critical to supporting your international research.
  • Get to know previous International Pilot grant recipients and their successes: Dr. Ana Olga Mocumbi in Mozambique and Dr. Jaime Arredondo Sanchez Lira, originally from Mexico and now working in Canada.

Please also see our list of previous International Pilot and other grant recipients, sorted by country, to give you an idea of the types of research supported by the International Core.
