Legal Education Visiting Scholar Program - Afghanistan: Strengthening rule of law is a key foreign policy objective and integral to the United States Government's overall effort to ensure peace and stability in Afghanistan. USG programs in rule of law, implemented through the State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), are focused on building the capacity of justice institutions, enhancing legal education, increasing opportunities for minorities and women, improving access to justice and creating a demand for justice. INL's Office for Afghanistan and Pakistan Programs is focused on directing and overseeing critical foreign assistance activities pertaining to counternarcotics, crime, rule of law and law enforcement training in Afghanistan. The Office of Afghanistan and Pakistan Programs is now seeking applications from U.S. public/private/state institutions of higher education (or law schools) with American Bar Association accreditation and the requisite capacity and experience to implement rule of law education programs in Afghanistan. Specifically, the U.S. public/private/state institution of higher education (or law school) will develop and implement a visiting scholar program which consists of degree and non-degree study, a clinical education component, a pilot targeted partnership with Herat University Schools of Law and Sharia, a legal English program, research and library assistance, and a targeted partnership with a third-party university operating in a country with a significant Muslim population. Project activities under this visiting scholar award must target Afghanistan, specifically Afghan legal education. Proposals must span a period of activity of not less than three (3) years with a maximum of five (5) years. Proposals must demonstrate support for sustainable improvement in the Afghan legal education system and integrate all elements of this solicitation. The federal assistance award will be for a period of up to (5) five years. Between $7 million and $13 million will be available for this award. PLEASE NOTE: Budgets submitted with this award application shall include a detailed line item budget for the full period of performance proposed. INL will not consider proposals that reflect any type of support for any member, affiliate, or representative of a designated terrorist organization or narcotics trafficker, including elected members of government.
