The Office of Global Educational Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces an open competition for the Afghanistan School Administrator Project (ASAP). The goal of the project is to enhance the educational and professional skills of the participants, including their leadership potential. While in the U.S. the participants will gain knowledge about the United States through daily interactions with Americans as well as improve their skills in school administration. The project will bring three different groups of 10-12 participants to the U.S. for a six-to-eight week program between late winter 2006 and spring 2007. The participants will be women who serve as school principals or assistant principals in Afghan schools. The administrators will receive an overview of U.S. education and education philosophy, have a series of workshops on school administration, visit U.S. schools, receive basic English instruction, and receive a computer laptop with training as needed. The grantee organization will assist the participants in conducting follow-on workshops in Afghanistan in cooperation with the Ministry of Education. Upon return to Afghanistan the alumnae will be eligible to compete in a small grants competition. The project will be conducted in three phases outlined below. Bureau funding of up to $700,000 is available to support one grant.
