Promoting Internationalization of Indian Universities Through U.S. collaborations: The proposed funding opportunity will provide insights on U.S. internationalization best practices to Indian higher education administrators from a range of private and public institutions. This exposure to discussions, presentations and networking opportunities will help Indian administrators forge collaborations with their American counterparts. PAS India believes that higher education advocacy organizations like Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) provide opportunities for Indian and American institutions to explore common strategies and forge collaborations. Annual conferences organized by these two and other prominent associations or advocacy groups could be an excellent platform for Indian universities to meet, negotiate, and discuss with their American counterparts in order to develop ideas to collaborate. Collaboration includes setting up joint academic programs like joint Ph.D. degrees, study abroad programs, research collaborations, and potentially hiring young post-doctoral scholars from the United States. PAS India will work with the grantee to identify a cohort comprising higher education leaders from all consulate regions in India to be part of this group of education leaders that can leverage the AIEA platform. PAS New Delhi will take the lead in working with the selected grantee to identify higher education leaders who have demonstrated interest and have proven record of supporting U.S.-India collaborations. After disseminating information about this opportunity to education contacts, the project will develop and distribute an application to select best-fit candidates.In the application process, we will request the applicant to clearly outline how they will benefit from this opportunity to participate in the AIEA conference and the contacts they will be meeting at the event. We will target a combination of senior education administrators who have in the past attended these conferences and select some education leaders who may have not attended these conferences but have a clear idea of leveraging the opportunity. We will also support candidates who have clear and cogent ideas about how they will complement the AIEA experience by combining it with visits to U.S. research labs and U.S. institutions. Applicants should provide a coherent plan to utilize this opportunity beyond partaking in sessions alone in order to be selected. This opportunity will be to support intense networking and collaboration building for Indian universities.The AIEA conference is scheduled to take place at Washington DC in February 2021.PAS India intends to develop new educational collaborations and research partnerships between selected Indian and U.S. universities to reinforce our people-to-people ties, strengthen on-ground partnerships, and create economic value for American universities. Economic value will be created through academic collaborations that will allow for more Indian students to pursue partial degree requirements in the United States and by U.S. universities offering advisory and consultancy services to Indian educational institutions. The people-to-people ties of this program will be evidenced through the connections forged between scholars of both countries.
