USAID Releases New Higher Education for Leadership, Innovation, and Exchange (HELIX) Annual Program Statement (APS)
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and its partners have been working to tackle the world’s toughest development challenges for more than 50 years. Our mission is to partner to end extreme poverty and promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity. USAID's Office of Education, in partnership with Mission(s), Bureaus, and Independent Offices (M/B/IOs) from across the Agency, through this Higher Education for Leadership, Innovation, and Exchange (HELIX) Annual Program Statement (APS) aims to improve partner country higher education individual, institutional, and organizational capacity for change by supporting opportunities for partnerships, scholarships, exchanges, fellowships, internships, apprenticeships, work-based learning, research, communities of practice, and other relevant forms of capacity development and change management.
The aim of this APS is to support solutions that will create meaningful change at the individual, institutional, and/or system level, with, in connection to, or through higher education, as a country moves forward in its Journey to Self-Reliance. This is planned to be achieved under the umbrella of the New Partnerships Initiative (NPI).
The HELIX APS is not a Request for Applications (RFA). Rather, the HELIX APS requests Concept Note(s) in response to addenda published to this APS.
