This study describes a degree training programme conducted by Lamar University and Marquette University in the Gaza Strip 1992-1996 and its impacts on participants and others. Faculty from both universities travelled to the Gaza Strip, lived there and taught courses in classrooms constructed for the purpose. A $10 million grant from USAID resulted in the creation of state-of-the-art facilities for providing clinical services to speech- and hearing-handicapped children and the training of 33 Palestinian men and women. It provides a model that could be used to develop programmes for training other kinds of professionals in developing countries, and it may also be of interest to scholars studying the impact of projects funded by USAID.
