Academics Without Borders (AWB) is a Montreal-based, not-for-profit organization that supports capacity building projects in the higher education sector in low- and middle-income countries. These projects are aimed at increasing the local capacity of universities to further advance their academic and research goals, as well as contribute to their overall human development. AWB offers volunteer opportunities to Canadian university faculty members and staff interested in joining existing projects or applying for new ones. Generally, they are built on established relationships with colleagues at collaborating tertiary institutions. The partner university is expected to lead the design and implementation of the project.
