USAID’s American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) program provides assistance to schools, libraries, and medical centers outside the United States to serve as study and demonstration centers for American ideals and practices. ASHA’s grants help these institutions demonstrate to people overseas the achievements of the United States in education, training, research and medicine, while creating a foundation for development by training future leaders in a wide variety of disciplines.
ASHA organizations effectively:
- Provide the benefits of American ideals and practices in education and health
- Serve as demonstration and study centers of those ideas and practices
- Foster interchange, mutual understanding, and favorable relations with the United States.
Since the inception of the program, ASHA has assisted more than 250 institutions in over 70 countries. ASHA currently manages a worldwide portfolio of over 100 competitively awarded grants and continues to award 35 to 40 new grants each year to libraries, schools and medical centers in Africa, Asia, Europe and Eurasia, Latin American and the Caribbean and the Middle East.
ASHA grants are awarded to assist in capital improvements such as building or renovating facilities and the procurement of scientific, medical and educational equipment. The overseas institutions are encouraged to fund a portion of their operating expenses from tuition, fees, private contributions and earnings from endowments.
