  • Higher education institutions located and legally registered in Colombia and the U.S. are eligible to apply for grants for the Colombia-U.S. Rural Education for Peace Competition. This Innovation Fund competition seeks to receive applications from a diversity of public and private HEIs, including accredited institutions, non-accredited institutions (in Colombia), and rural and urban institutions from both countries.
  • As autonomous, foreign institutions dedicated to the promotion of mutual understanding between the host country and the United States, bi-national centers (BNCs) are eligible to compete; however, if a BNC is applying as prime, it must do so in partnership with at least one in-country HEI, in addition to a U.S. HEI.
  • Proposals may involve new institutional partnerships or build on existing partnerships, but in all cases should demonstrate strong institutional support from the partners involved.
  • Overall, proposals must include a partnership between at least HEI in the U.S. and one HEI in Colombia. However, proposals that constitute a tripartite alliance, between (1) a U.S. HEI with (2) an accredited university in Colombia and (3) a non-accredited institution in Colombia, will be found favorable during the evaluation process.
  • In order to increase the diversity of participating institutions, the Review Committee reserves the right to give preference to institutions that have not previously received Innovation Fund grants, but all are encouraged to apply.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted online via given website.

Eligible Countries: Colombia and United States
