Category Explanation: The goal of STAR is to improve the effectiveness of global health programs worldwide by developing and strengthening the capacity of global health professionals. The primary focus of the STAR program is to strengthen the technical and analytic professional cadre of human resources for global health by partnering with organizations of higher learning, development research, and/or health professional associations. STAR will achieve this objective through placing fellows in external institutions primarily in USAID-supported countries and, as part of the training of global health professionals, in USAID, in partnerships with academic and other institutions. Utilizing an approach that leverages the expertise, resources, and partnerships of academic institutions and many other types of organizations, STAR will contribute to strengthening institutions in developing countries that provide technical leadership and improve systems that promote technical collaboration across the global health community.

Description: Subject to funding availability, STAR is a five-year cooperative agreement. The Office of Professional Development and Management Support within the Bureau for Global Health will manage the Award. The Award covers all core-funded activities under this Agreement, and may receive both USAID core and field support funds, from a variety of accounts and earmarks. Applicants are encouraged to propose creative collaborative partnerships with other USG agencies and/or international organizations, NGOs, private voluntary organizations, and firms to implement activities under this program. Proposing at least one new partner in response to this NFO is also highly desirable. “New partners” are defined as organizations that have never received Bureau for Global Health funding as either a direct or sub-recipient. Under this definition, organizations that have been directly funded by a USAID Mission bilateral program or have received USAID Regional Bureau funding will be considered a new partner. Partnerships should be of manageable size with relationships and responsibilities clearly defined.
