ARCHIVED - Foreign Grants - Peer Review for Foreign or International Applications
Application Review Criteria
Applications from foreign institutions or international organizations will be evaluated and scored during the initial review process using the standard peer review criteria. In addition, the following will be assessed as part of the review process and award decision:
- Whether the project presents special opportunities for furthering research programs through the use of unusual talent, resources, populations, or environmental conditions in other countries that are not readily available in the United States or that augment existing U.S. resources.
- Whether the proposed project has specific relevance to the mission and objectives of the IC and has the potential for significantly advancing the health sciences in the United States.
Note: These additional application review criteria are not applied to applications from domestic institutions with foreign components.
Approval by the NIH Institute/Center National Advisory Council or Board is required in order for NIH to fund research grant applications from foreign institutions or international organizations. An expedited council review process is not allowed in order to fund applications from foreign institutions or international organizations.
Enhancing Peer Review Initiative
NIH is currently reviewing and enhancing the peer review process to be more responsive to today’s research environment. To keep current with the latest changes in peer review and how they may impact foreign or international applications, visit the Enhancing Peer Review page: http://enhancing-peer-review.nih.gov/.
