NIH Policy: Foreign Components Added to a Grant to a Domestic or Foreign Organization

Adding a foreign component under a grant to a domestic or foreign organization requires NIH prior approval. For purposes of this policy, a foreign component is defined as performance of any significant element or segment of the project outside the United States either by the grantee or by a researcher employed by a foreign institution, whether or not grant funds are expended. Activities that would meet this definition include the following:

  • The involvement of human subjects or vertebrate animals at a foreign site.
  • Extensive foreign travel by grantee project staff for the purpose of data collection, surveying, sampling, and similar activities.
  • Any activity of the grantee that may involve the population, environment, resources, or affairs of a foreign country.
Examples of other grant-related activities that may be significant are:
  • collaborations with investigators at a foreign site anticipated to result in co-authorship;
  • use of facilities or instrumentation at a foreign site; or
  • receipt of financial support or resources from a foreign entity.
A change in the performance site within a foreign country or the addition of a performance site in a country other than that specified in the approved application requires NIH awarding IC prior approval. The transfer of work by a domestic grantee to a foreign component also requires awarding IC prior approval.
