Center for International Development

Kandahar University Grant

Ball State University in the United States received a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of State to help Kandahar University develop curriculum that will emphasize free market principles and entrepreneurship for its new College of Economics.  Members of Kandahar's Economics Department will work with faculty members from Ball State's nationally ranked Center for Entrepreneurship to create courses in entrepreneurship, business development and economic development.  The purpose of the grant is to provide Afghanistan with added economic development opportunities and integration into the international trade and business community, which lends itself to greater stability and peace in the region.
