The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent federal government agency that receives overall foreign policy guidance from the Secretary of State and supports long-term and equitable economic growth, agriculture and trade; global health; and democracy, conflict prevention, and humanitarian assistance. If an institution of higher education has a good idea which is linked to an Agency sector or specific country strategy, for which there are no competitive opportunities, USAID accepts, for review, well-conceived, innovative unsolicited concept papers and proposals that advance U.S. foreign assistance objectives (as these are articulated in the Agency websites). Interested parties should explore the Agency's web page (https://www.usaid.gov/) to review and determine the joint interests of your institution as these relate to USAID's strategic objectives in the sectors (for thematic programs) and countries where you wish to operate.
