USAID University Engagement through Higher Education Institution Program

The grants and programs of the USAID are all designed to achieve a common goal, to realize its general agency mission, which is to "extend a helping hand to those people overseas struggling to make a better life, recover from a disaster or striving to live in a free and democratic country."
