The Improving Higher Education Quality Program seeks to remedy that concern, by way of constituting programs and activities that can potentially leave behind institutional legacies which are highly capable of providing effective human capital development.
Among all of the areas of concern are the educations system's institutional differentiation and autonomy, training, pay, and promotion of professors, renovation of instructional methods, development of 21st century education
managers and leaders, and finally, the development and use of relevant curriculum.
In its Higher Education Reform Agenda (HERA), the Vietnamese government has stated that the education system will be critically improved through improving the quality of teaching and research, extending the autonomy of higher education institutions specifically in academic and administrative matters, with an end goal to improving responsiveness to the needs of beneficiaries; and finally, increasing private sector investment.
The recipients of the grant award will be tasked to develop programs and initiatives that will address these concerns, and as a result, the USAID Headquarters in Bangkok is set to administer a funding amount of $2,500,000 to aid this initiative.
USAID has stipulated that the organizations and institutions who will be eligible to submit an application under this program are the following:
a) US or non-US non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
b) Non-profit or for-profit organizations
c) Academic institutions
d) Private sector entities
