American Councils for International Education is pleased to announce a request for project proposals for the U.S.-Kazakhstan University Partnerships Grants Program 2020-21.
Funded by the U.S. Mission to Kazakhstan, the U.S.-Kazakhstan University Partnerships Grants Program aims to establish new partnerships between higher education institutions, strengthen educational ties between the two countries, and bolster English-language programming.
Administered by American Councils for International Education (American Councils), these grants are designed to adapt policies, practices, and administrative structures for teaching and learning English and English for special purposes in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); and modify teaching and curriculum for student outcomes in those areas.
Awards may support travel for faculty and technical experts, honoraria, materials, and conference fees for projects in the U.S. and Kazakhstan that advance the following program goals to:
- Improve curriculum and pedagogy of English and STEM teachers, and integrate English into their courses; particularly in regions outside of Nur-Sultan and Almaty;
- Facilitate, implement, and measure five U.S.-Kazakhstan partnerships that adapt policies, practices, and administrative structures for English and STEM education and adapt pedagogy and curriculum for student outcomes in those areas.
Deadline for applications is Friday, 23 October 2020 05:00 PM EST.
Awards are expected to begin December 2020 and must be completed by December 31, 2021. Individual grants will be awarded from $40,000 per project.
