 AIPS is pleased to announce that it has received the Title VI Overseas Research grant for the FY 2016-2020 from the US Department of Education ($65K/year for four years). This grant will be used to support the AIPS overseas centers in Islamabad and Lahore, Pakistan. In addition AIPS will use this grant to continue its outreach to US community colleges by providing funding to bridge the gap in the offerings of South Asia/Pakistan courses at community colleges. Lastly, this grant will allow AIPS to enhance exchange and scholarly training programs with institutions of higher learning in the Punjab province of Pakistan by continuing its work with Punjab Higher Education Commission (PHEC) and the US Community Colleges for International Development (CCID) to develop a pilot Community College Project (CCP) in Punjab, Pakistan.
