The Program encourages mutual understanding and educational improvements through cooperation in higher education with targeted countries and regions that are of high current priority to the Department of State. I. Funding Opportunity Description: Program Overview The Educational Partnerships Program enables U.S. colleges and universities and their Turkish and Armenian counterpart institutions to pursue objectives cooperatively through exchange visits of faculty, students and administrators.

Proposals must directly or indirectly make enduring contributions to the normalization of relations between Turkey and Armenia. These might consist of partnerships that focus on English teaching, secondary or post-secondary educational administration, business administration, regional development and tourism and hospitality management, but are not limited to these areas. Purpose: The Educational Partnerships Program has the following purposes: - To enable post-secondary institutions in the United States, Turkey and Armenia with similar educational missions to develop and broaden institutional cooperation through exchange of students, faculty members and administrators for the purposes of study, teaching, research and outreach. - To increase understanding between the United States, Turkey and Armenia through cooperation in higher education. - To reinforce the impact of other State Department programs, including the Fulbright Program. - To support the current foreign policy priorities of the Department of State, especially efforts to promote the normalization of relations between Turkey and Armenia in the civil society sector and to improve educational outreach to non-elite populations.
