What is different about the review of foreign applications?

In addition to standard review criteria, peer reviewers look for additional information in foreign applications, such as whether they can provide expertise or resources that can't be found in the United States.

That same page also explains that for second-level review, NIAID must present foreign applications as special issues to our Advisory Council. Learn more at International Applications.
