The Alumni Affairs Division of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the administration of the FY 2015 International Exchange Alumni Enrichment Seminars.
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 eight to twelve regional or sub-regional enrichment seminars for U. S. government-sponsored people-to-people exchange program alumni, focused on thematic topics that support U. S. foreign policy priorities and that foster a sense of shared identity, networking, and dialogue among participating alumni.
The enrichment seminars will be three to four days in duration for 20-100 participants each, and can take place in six of the world regions and the United States.
ECA anticipates issuing a Cooperative Agreement of up to $1,500,00 0. To support efforts of alumni to apply their international exchange and seminar experience within their communities, participants will be eligible to compete for a small grants opportunity of up to $10,000 per project following the enrichment seminar, out of an overall $500,000 grants fund.
