The CCI Program provides international participants from underserved and underrepresented communities with an intensive academic-year long program at accredited U.S. community colleges, focused on building technical and professional skills while deepening participants’ understanding of the United States.
The CCI Program demonstrates the U.S. commitment to education for all by providing access to educational opportunities to a broad spectrum of international students from underserved and underrepresented communities. By providing quality technical and professional education, community colleges can provide students from developing countries with skills and experiences that will help them to participate constructively in their countries’ development. The Bureau is engaged with the U.S. community college sector to increase the number of international students enrolled at U.S. community colleges and to reinforce efforts to build international ties. International students bring opportunities for global engagement and learning to U.S. classrooms and campuses, encouraging U.S. community college students to study abroad and fostering global awareness and skills development for those U.S. students who may not have the opportunity to study or travel abroad.
It is the Bureau’s intent to award up to three cooperative agreements (one base year plus two non-competitive continuations) for an estimated three-year total amount of $15,600,000, pending availability of funds. There is no minimum or maximum cost sharing percentage required for this competition. However, the Bureau encourages applicants to provide maximum levels of cost sharing and funding in support of its programs.
Proposals requesting funding for infrastructure development activities, sometimes referred to as “bricks and mortar support,” are NOT eligible for consideration under this competition and will be declared technically ineligible and will receive no further consideration in the review process.
Limitation: One per Indiana University
Eligible applicants may not submit more than one proposal in this competition.
