The Public Affairs Section of the U. S. Embassy in Islamabad and the U. S. Consulate General in Karachi announce an open competition for a cooperative agreement to establish a University Partnership between a four-year college or university in the U. S. and Kinnaird College for Women in English Literature
with an emphasis on American Literature.
Accredited U. S. four-year colleges and universities meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to pursue institutional or departmental objectives in partnership with Kinnaird College.
Objectives detailed as priorities for this partnership include:
collaborative research, sharing of resources, professional development for faculty, and faculty and graduate student exchange.
Faculty exchange programs of a few months and graduate student exchange programs of one semester are preferred by Kinnaird College.
Shared resources should include access to peer-reviewed journals, research papers, and curriculum.
The means of achieving these objectives is purposefully left broad to encourage the submission of innovative proposals tailored to the international education and research goals of both institutions.
The project implementation period should be 36 months.
