Academics Without Borders call for proposals

Academics Without Borders (AWB) is seeking project proposals from faculty members and staff at universities in the AWB network such as the University of Manitoba for capacity building projects in an institution of higher learning in the developing world.  Projects could focus on health, teaching and learning methodology, academic disciplines, student services or university back office operations, that is, any area in which universities are involved. The partner institution must be an accredited, public or private, non-profit institution of higher learning in a developing country (ask for the list of eligible countries) that is willing to enter into a partnership with AWB. The initiative must contribute to sustainable institutional development and have the support of the partner institution.  You may obtain the complete call for proposals by contacting
