Science, Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships in Higher Education Program

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The purpose of this Annual Program Statement (APS) is to disseminate information to prospective Applicants so they may develop and submit Applications for USAID funding. This APS: (A) describes the types of activities for which Applications will be considered; (B) describes the funding available and the process and requirements for submitting Applications; (C) explains the criteria for evaluating Applications; and (D) refers prospective Applicants to relevant documentation available on the internet. 

USAID/Lab anticipates awarding multiple grants and/or cooperative agreements as a result of this APS. However, publishing this APS does not commit USAID to make any awards.

The STIP APS is not a Request for Applications (RFA) or a Request for Proposals (RFP). Rather, the STIP APS requests STIP Concept Notes in response to addenda published to the this APS. Based on those Concept Notes, USAID will determine whether to request a full Application from an appropriate partner.
