Funding Detail Description
The Office of Global Educational Programs of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition to administer the FY 2020 Community College Administrator Program (CCAP). Accredited U.S. colleges and universities and other U.S. public or private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to design, administer and implement one, approximately six-week, intensive exchange program in the United States. The program is designed for foreign administrators from post-secondary vocational and technical institutions or their equivalents in selected countries. Exchange participants for the program will also include government officials or individuals with significant responsibilities related to post-secondary technical and vocational education. The program will examine the key tenets of community college administration and cutting-edge programs at U.S. community colleges that address local workforce development needs. In support of U.S. foreign policy, the program will build participant skills in community college administration in key areas including, but not limited to, leadership, governance, student affairs and student services, program assessment, workforce development, finance and private sector partnerships, community engagement, and distance learning. The successful applicant will provide flexible programming and an ability to tailor activities to selected countries’ education priorities for technical and vocational education. The proposal should outline specific plans to incorporate each selected country’s technical and vocational priorities into the program and to assess the impact of the program on fostering change at the institutional level and in the vocational-technical sector. The Bureau, in consultation with the Department’s regional bureaus and U.S. embassies/consulates, will select the final participating country or countries to reflect current foreign policy priorities.
