Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) Request for Grant Proposals: Competition for Proposals (1) To Strengthen Secondary Education in Indonesia Through a Program for High School English Language Teachers and/or (2) To Strengthen Private and Community-based Secondary Education in Indonesia through a Program for School Administrators & Community Leaders
The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces an open competition for grants to support two distinct exchanges projects with Indonesia. U.S. public and non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue code section 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3) may submit proposals that support the goals of the two exchange programs. The Program for High School English Language Teachers is intended to strengthen secondary school education in Indonesia, support tolerance in a diverse, democratic society, and allow Indonesians and Americans to share their views on international education and teaching high school students language and critical thinking skills necessary to their success in the workforce. The Program for School Administrators & Community Leaders will bring senior instructors and leaders (``kiai'') of Islamic day and boarding schools and counterparts from other Indonesian private schools to U.S. for informational sessions on teacher/administrator training techniques and classroom observation as well as provide them with an orientation to U.S. society, history, culture and values. Applicants must submit separate proposals for each project outlined.
