Calling All Alumni!

Do you remember being at the Global UGRAD workshop in DC and feeling inspired to do a project to better your country? The time to make that project idea a reality is here! The U.S. Department of State’s Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) is open until March 29th. AEIF provides small grants to teams of past and current participants of U.S. Government-sponsored exchange programs (Global UGRAD, Fulbright, FLEX, etc…) to carry out public service projects using the skills and knowledge they gained during their exchange experiences. Gather your friends and make your project happen!

Since it began in 2011, AEIF has supported more than 360 alumni-led initiatives around the world and reached millions of people both directly and indirectly through trainings, awareness campaigns, and leadership and empowerment programs. In 2017, the State Department awarded 68 grants of up to $25,000 to alumni teams worldwide to support their public service projects. From mentoring youth in social entrepreneurship to creating clubs that promote religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence, alumni around the world are leading their communities with innovative solutions to global challenges. Global UGRAD Alumni have won this grant several times. It CAN be you.
