International Extramural Associates Research Development Award (IEARDA) (G11)
The International Extramural Associates Research Development Award's (IEARDA) goal is to produce a cadre of trained research administrators in countries with limited resources to facilitate and/or develop the appropriate administrative infrastructure in their home institution for the implementation of a rigorous research program. This program will provide distance learning and NIH residency training, as well funding to augment an Office of Research Development at the grantee institution, for the purpose of strengthening biomedical and behavioral research activities. This Office will: Provide oversight and administrative management of extramural awards; support faculty who wish to secure external funding; serve as the main organizational unit for the technical development of grant proposal submissions and oversight; and, foster and facilitate research activities at the institution.
SUPPORT PROVIDED: This funding opportunity will use the G11 award mechanism. The NICHD intends to commit approximately $325,000 in total costs in FY 2007 to support up to three to six new awards in response to this RFA. An applicant may request a project period of up to five years and a budget of up to up to $35,000 in Direct Costs per year to support building the research administrative infrastructure for the institution. In addition, applicants may request up to $15,000 in the first year that can be used for travel and living allowance for the nternational Extramural Associate for participation in the residency program at NIH.
