This initiative aims to strengthen research ethics capacity in low and middle income countries (LMIC) by increasing the number of scientists, health professionals and academics from those countries with the knowledge and skills to develop research ethics education and provide ethical leadership. Applications should:

  • Develop a comprehensive ethics education program including master’s level curricula and practicum opportunities for LMIC academics, researchers and health professionals in ethics related to performing research involving human subjects in their home countries or;
  • Revise and renew existing master’s level international ethics education programs

New education program applications can request up to $230,000 in direct costs per year, while renewal education programs can request up to $276,000 in direct costs. Project periods cannot exceed five years. Letters of intent are due April 22, 2013. For more information, see the link below:
