Funded by the U.S. Mission to Kazakhstan, the U.S.- Kazakhstan University Partnerships Grants Program builds capacity for substantive international engagement between higher education institutions in the United States and Kazakhstan.
The goal of the program is to support seven projects led by U.S. community colleges and other higher education institutions that focus on any area of university administration or field of study, and four partnerships that lead to improved teacher training and curriculum development for English language teachers, including projects that will develop STEM teachers’ English skills to prepare them to teach in English-medium classrooms. These projects will support Kazakhstan’s efforts to develop a trilingual education system.
U.S. community colleges and higher education institutions faculty members and administrators are eligible to apply for partnership awards to advance current U.S.-Kazakhstan university connections or establish new partnerships, particularly in regions outside of Almaty and Nur-Sultan. Awards are expected to begin in January 2020 and must be completed by September 30, 2020. Individual grants will be awarded from $20,000 up to $39,600 per priority project.
