Grant Description

The Office of Alumni Affairs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the administration of the FY 2016 Thematic International Exchange Seminars (TIES) for U.S. Alumni. U.S. public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to conduct four to six regional seminars for American citizens who are alumni of U.S. government-sponsored people-to-people exchange programs. The seminars will focus on thematic topics that support U.S. foreign policy priorities and foster a sense of shared identity, networking, and dialogue among participating alumni. The seminars will be three to four days in duration for 40-60 participants each, and will take place in different cities throughout the United States. ECA anticipates issuing a Cooperative Agreement of up to $750,000. To support efforts of U.S. alumni to apply their international exchange and seminar experience within their communities or globally, participants will be eligible to compete for a small grants opportunity of up to $10,000 per project following the seminar, out of approximately $200,000 allocated within the total award budget.
