Purpose of Program: The IAL program supports high-quality programs designed to develop and improve literacy skills for children and students from birth through 12th grade in high-need local educational agencies (high-need LEAs, as defined in this notice) and schools. The U.S. Department of Education (Department) intends to support innovative programs that promote early literacy for young children, motivate older children to read, and increase student achievement by using school libraries as partners to improve literacy, distributing free books to children and their families, and offering high-quality literacy activities.
Many schools and districts across the Nation do not have school libraries that deliver high-quality literacy programming to children and their families. Additionally, many schools do not have qualified library media specialists and library facilities. Where facilities do exist, they often lack adequate books and other materials and resources. In many communities, high-need children have limited access to appropriate age- and grade-level reading material in their homes.
The IAL program supports the implementation of high-quality plans for childhood literacy activities and book distribution efforts that are supported by evidence of strong theory (as defined in this notice).

Description: Mumbai is home to some of India's leading universities, and the management and engineering programs available to students here are first-rate. In addition to training the next generation of business, technological and medical leaders, there is a need to train the next generation of Indian thinkers on foreign policy and security issues. India is playing an increasingly-active role in regional and global affairs, as evidenced, for example, by evacuating citizens from Yemen and providing much-needed assistance to Nepal following a devastating earthquake in April 2015. As India increases its regional and global engagement, the rising generation of Indian leaders will benefit from access to focused security studies. Currently, there are few if any dedicated security studies programs at western India academic institutions. The U. S. Consulate General Mumbai seeks to support a U. S. university-Indian university partnership to develop a one-year certificate program in international security studies. The ideal partner will be a U. S. university with a recognized security studies program, or institution with a record of developing security studies programs. The U. S. Consulate General Mumbai will complement the academic course with guest lectures as possible from visiting speakers, U. S. officials, and resident expertise in the Consulate and Embassy. Through this program, we hope to enhance educational ties and to better prepare emerging Indian scholars and practitioners for India's growing role in regional and global affairs.
