DelPHE stands for Development Partnerships in Higher Education. It offered funding for higher education institutions in Africa and Asia and has been running from June 2006. The final round of funding for DelPHE has now closed and no further funding will be available under the programme. The last awarded projects (Round 5) will continue to receive funding until March 2013, when the programme finishes.
The goal of the programme is to provide funding to support partnerships between higher education institutions (HEIs) working on collaborative activity linked to the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The UK Government's Department for International Development (DfID) is investing up to £3 million a year into Development Partnerships in Higher Education programme (DelPHE).
The overall goal of DelPHE is to enable higher education institutions (HEIs) to act as catalysts for poverty reduction and sustainable development. DelPHE is achieving this by building and strengthening the capacity of HEIs to contribute towards the MDGs and promote science and technology related knowledge and skills. It is anticipated that around 200 partnerships will be funded during the lifetime of the scheme.
