The U.S. embassy Public Affairs Section accepts applications to its Alumni Grants Program.

  • to initiate a public or community service program;
  • to support alumni association events;
  • to organize training programs or conferences for professional colleagues and/or other alumni;
  • grants for travel of Eurasian and Southeast European alumni within Europe and Eurasia, including regional alumni events;
  • cost-sharing for international travel grants for alumni to the United States;
  • continued funding for existing alumni centers, and start-up costs for alumni associations;
  • networking events;
  • develop and publish textbooks, brochures, pamphlets, or related reference or educational materials on topics that further USG assistance goals;
  • conduct other projects that support democratic and economic reform initiatives.

$3000 for individuals and $5000 for alumni organizations. If you receive funding, you will be required to submit a detailed program and financial report on the outcomes of the project.
