Higher Education for Development (HED), in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is issuing a request for applications for the South Sudan Higher Education Initiative for Equity and Leadership Development (SSHIELD) Program under the global Women’s Leadership Program.

The purpose of the partnership will be to support South Sudanese national and local development goals that promote gender equality and female empowerment within the education sector.

HED was established through an agreement with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the six college presidential associations, including NAICU.
