The Ohio State University proposes to launch a pilot project in partnership with AMU to meet the growing need for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) faculty in India.
US Secretary of State John F. Kerry signed eight MoUs with Minister of Human Resource Development M.M. Pallam Raju to step up collaboration and build partnership between American and Indian institutions of higher education.
One of these involves the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). Each of these projects will receive an award of about $250,000.
The AMU programme will be implemented by both institutions to build a STEM-Education and Research Centre at AMU that would be aimed at providing opportunity for education and research in areas of mutual expertise and benefit.
