Indo-US 21st Century Knowledge Initiative

STEM Education and Research Faculty Training Program

Global strategy for higher education in the 21st century

Higher education institutions in emerging countries face a critical need for world-class research faculty in Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (STEM) and related disciplines. The Ohio State University (OSU) has developed a program for STEM Education and Research to train graduate students from India as the next generation of STEM faculty, in partnership with the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). The OSU-AMU pilot project, supported by a highly competitive and prestigious award from the US-India Education Foundation under the Indo-US 21st Century Knowledge Initiative (formerly known as the Obama-Singh Initiative), is an exemplar for Indian universities as well as other countries. The general ideas are outlined in the Concept Paper.
