Peer health/ INDOnesia - cycle 2

 
Eligibility Information:
 
Please read this section thoroughly.
PEER Health projects are intended to reflect the rationale of the PEER Health program to leverage USG scientific investments and enhance health development goals.  Ideally, the USG funded collaborators are investigators who will enhance the scientific merit and impact of PEER Health projects through leveraged and applied expertise, skills, methodologies, laboratory access, and synergies with ongoing projects.  While it is not necessary that the USG funded partner’s current research award directly relate to the proposed study to be funded under the PEER Health program, the degree to which the proposed PEER Health work synergizes and builds off the expertise of the USG funded partner will be an important review criteria in final funding decisions.  Indonesian investigators are encouraged to enter into new collaborative relationships, especially in areas in which they could benefit from the scientific expertise of a USG partner, but existing partnerships should also apply. 

Applicants who successfully move from concept note to the full proposal stage may be given funds to fly out their USG funded partner to Indonesia, to draft the full proposal. If awarded, the Indonesian PEER Health awardee will serve as the primary “Principal Investigator” or PI of the grant.  The USG supported partners will be referred to as the PEER Health “Partner”.

Applicants
Applicants submitting concept notes to the PEER Health Program must be citizens of Indonesia and affiliated with and permanently based at an academic or government-managed/recognized research or healthcare institution within Indonesia.  Applicants may also be based at certain USAID vetted local non-government organizations (NGO) and specialty/professional societies. 

USG Supported partner
Indonesian researchers who apply for a PEER Health/Indonesia award must apply in partnership with a health researcher currently funded by a U.S. Government (USG) federal agency. For a list of federal agencies please see here (http://www.usa.gov/directory/federal/).

The requirement of having PEER Health applicants’ partner with a USG funded researcher on PEER Health projects is intended to reflect the rationale of the PEER Health program to leverage USG scientific investments and enhance health development goals. Ideally, collaborators are investigators who will enhance the scientific merit and impact of PEER Health projects through leveraged and applied expertise, skills, methodologies, laboratory access, and synergies with ongoing projects. While it is not necessary that the USG funded partner’s current research award directly relate to the proposed study to be funded under the PEER Health program, the degree to which the proposed PEER Health work synergizes and builds off the expertise of the USG funded partner will be an important review criteria in final funding decisions. Indonesian investigators are encouraged to enter into new collaborative relationships, especially in areas in which they could benefit from the scientific expertise of a USG partner.

USG partners must have an active research award (this can include grants, cooperative agreements, or contracts) funded by a US federal research agency and must be the primary PI on the award. The concept note submission must include a signed letter of support from the USG partner, which outlines how the USG research program supports and synergizes with the proposed partnership in Indonesia. The letter of support must also include the USG funding agency, award number, name, and contact of the program officer for award verification and end date of the award. The USG funded PI must have an active USG funded award at the time of application. The ability of the USG funded PI to appropriately contribute to the partnership will be evaluated during the review process.
