100,000 Strong in the Americas: Seeking Proposals for U.S.-Argentina Workforce Development Competition

Deadline: 15 March 2018

Partners of the Americas (Partners), the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and NAFSA: Association of International Educators has announced a new grant competition entitled “U.S.-Argentina Workforce Development Competition” as a part of 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Fund.

The purpose of the U.S.-Argentina Workforce Development Competition is to provide incentive grants to higher education institutions (HEIs) in United States and Argentina—these include colleges, community colleges, universities and other post-secondary institutions with credit bearing programs—that promote study abroad and training opportunities in the fields of Economic Development and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), with a special emphasis on energy, geosciences, and/or natural resources management.

Expected Results

Higher education institutions that are successful in implementing Innovation Fund grants will demonstrate increased capacity to develop and administer study abroad programs that receive and/or send students between the United States and Argentina. These HEIs will:

  • Increase the number of students studying abroad in the U.S. and Argentina;
  • Demonstrate increased awareness of the barriers to study abroad at their institution;
  • Possess a new model to engage students in the U.S. and Argentina;
  • Demonstrate an increase in the number of effective partnerships between U.S. and Argentina HEIs above and beyond what would have taken place without the grant.

Funding Information

The intent of the U.S.-Argentina Workforce Development Competition is to award up to eleven (11) Innovation Grants of up to $25,000 to selected proposals.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Higher education institutions located and legally registered in the United States and Argentina is eligible to apply for grants from the U.S.-Argentina Workforce Development Competition.
  • This competition seeks to receive applications from a diversity of HEIs, including public and private; four-year and shorter-term degree-issuing institutions; and large, small, rural, and urban institutions.
  • The intention of selecting from these categories is to ensure that the selected institutions represent the broadest diversity of institutional profiles, so that successful innovations have the greatest possibility of replication across the institutions that will ultimately be critical to reaching the overall goal of 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Fund.
  • Overall, proposals must include a partnership between at least one higher education institution in the United States and one higher education institution in Argentina.
