The Visiting Program is open to foreign national scientists, typically those at the early stages of their careers. There are two primary categories of Visiting Program participants: Visiting Fellows, who receive awards for research training, and Visiting Scientists, who receive Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) appointments to conduct research. Each participant works closely with a senior NIH investigator who serves as supervisor or sponsor during the period of award or appointment.

Agencies Involved: The National Institute of Health (NIH)

Key Information: Foreign scientists (pre/post doc) who wish to participate in the NIH Visiting Program must first secure an invitation for an award or appointment from a senior scientist at the NIH.
