ASHA in Europe and Eurasia

Since 1959 ASHA has awarded approximately $101 million in assistance to private institutions in Europe and in Eurasia.

ASHA grants have enhanced the academic and agriculture infrastructure of some countries in the region, and increased the number and quality of institutions of higher learning, hospitals, and clinics in Europe and Eurasia.  Educational institutions in the region provide academic and vocational training at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels.

Universities in the region offer programs in:

  • Liberal arts
  • Business
  • Agriculture
  • Sciences

Many graduates and recipients of services from ASHA-assisted institutions in the region are now key decision makers in their respective fields. They include key members of the executive and legislative branches of Government.

ASHA's primary objective in funding grants in this region is to strengthen the capacity of beneficiary institutions to demonstrate American advancements in education and medical technology and practices in the areas of research, training and patient care.

Projects funded by ASHA grants have also contributed to improvements in the socio-economic livelihoods of the communities served and increased mutual understanding between the people of the United States and those of Europe and Eurasia.
