COMSTECH signed a MoU with IFS in 1998, for strengthening of S&T in the OIC member states. The joint Program is valuable because of the similarity of the mandates and strong common interests in capacity building of the two organizations in the field of science. The essential purpose of the collaboration is to enhance research capability within the OIC region, and to reap a rich harvest by obtaining matching grants from IFS (US$ 0.1 million/year) for OIC scientists and institutions.

This important program has financed 306 projects in various disciplines in 32 member states of the OIC. The countries supported under this Program include Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Djibouti, Egypt, Gabon, Gambia, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somali, Sudan, Suriname, Togo, Tunisia and Uganda. The funds jointly provided so far amount to US$ 3.291 million. Country-wise distribution of the the grants are given in the following table:
