Higher Education for Development (HED), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. Department of Education, is issuing a request for applications for the Broader Middle East and North Africa - U.S. Community College Entrepreneurship Proposal Development Grants Program.

Contingent upon funding, HED anticipates making up to ten (10) awards of up to $60,000 each for a six-month period of performance to support the planning for partnerships between U.S. community colleges and community and technical colleges in the following countries in the Broader Middle East and North Africa  (BMENA) region: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Tunisia, and Yemen.

These grants are intended to support the creation of proposals for long-term partnerships of not less than three years to strengthen the capacity of BMENA partner institutions through the promotion of entrepreneurship.  The partnership proposals developed through these planning grants will be submitted to HED at the conclusion of the grant period.  HED will, through a peer review process, evaluate the proposals and rank them for consideration for implementation funding.
