Boise State University, through the Center for Global Engagement, is pleased to receive the 2022 U.S. – Andean Innovation Fund Grant.
The grant, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Partner of the Americas and CAF Development Bank of Latin America, will support the program entitled “Closing the Gender-Gap in the Americas: New Methodologies and Curriculum for Action-Research and Social Change,” in collaboration with partner universities Universidad Científica del Sur (Lima, Peru) and Universidad Tecnológica Privada de Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
Through the 2023 calendar year, the three universities will engage in virtual and in-person exchanges with a focus on closing gender inequalities in the Americas. Students will tackle this global issue from the lenses of public policy, legal studies and economic development.
Boise State University students who are selected for this grant will travel to South America in May 2023. Conversely, students from Peru and Bolivia will travel to Boise in September 2023 for one week to explore issues of gender inequality in the U.S. context. Faculty who are interested in becoming involved in this program should contact Assistant Provost for Global Engagement, Gonzalo R. Bruce, firstname.lastname@example.org.
