Strengthening the US-Iraq Relationship through Higher Education Partnerships: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad Public Affairs Office invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement a one-year small grants program to foster partnerships between U.S. institutions of higher education (universities, colleges or community colleges) and Iraqi public or private universities. Applicants should have a record of accomplishment in collaborating with Iraqi and American higher education institutions and the demonstrated ability to implement complex projects in post-conflict areas. Priority consideration will be given to proposals that clearly demonstrate how American academic expertise will be introduced to the target universities and that focus on preparing Iraqi students to enter the marketplace through internships and practical skills development.
Northern Iraq Job Skills Development Program: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Affair Office (PA) for a job skills development and mentoring program in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, targeting Halabja, Garmian, and Charmo universities. This project will match 150 university seniors with local trainers and private sector leaders for a one-year mentorship program. The program’s objective is to improve the ability of university seniors to find employment outside the public sector, including through entrepreneurship. Program elements will include recruitment of participants, a one-day networking and mentoring workshop, structured mentoring activities over a period of eight months, and a closing ceremony and workshop. The awardee is encouraged to work with mentors to find internship opportunities or job placements for participants at the completion of this program
