Description

The U.S. Mission to Kazakhstan has posted a grant opportunity titled "Alumni Engagement and Outreach Program". This grant is in the category of Employment, Labor, and Training and falls under the funding instrument type of Grant. The grant does not require any cost sharing or matching requirement. The opportunity is open to USG alumni associations, nonprofit organizations, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, and educational institutions. The grant has a closing date of July 14, 2024, and expects to make one award with an award ceiling and floor of $80,000.

The purpose of this grant is to implement an Alumni Engagement and Outreach Program that recognizes the longstanding U.S. support for Kazakhstan and the contributions of USG exchange alumni to the country. The program aims to support alumni as opinion leaders in their communities by highlighting U.S. culture, diversity and inclusion efforts, and alumni expertise and experience. The proposed programs must include an American element, such as a connection with American experts, organizations, or institutions, or the usage of American educational/informational resources.

The U.S. Mission has previously supported USG alumni engagement through the National Alumni Network, which included activities like alumni forums, mentoring programs, small grants, and published alumni profiles. This funding opportunity aims to strengthen cultural ties between the United States and Kazakhstan through academic and professional programming that promotes bilateral cooperation.

The project goals include strengthening alumni cooperation with the U.S. embassy and fellow USG exchange alumni across diverse regions, fields of interest, and exchange program cohorts. The project objectives include increasing the reach and diversity of the alumni network, establishing partnerships with local organizations and institutions, developing initiatives to deepen alumni engagement, and utilizing multimedia platforms to showcase alumni achievements and contributions.

The grant is open to USG alumni with a focus on youth and young adults aged 18-35, recent USG exchange alumni from 2019-2024 in various fields, and those residing in regional cities outside of Astana and Almaty. The grantor contact for this opportunity is the U.S. Embassy Public Diplomacy Section, and additional information can be found on the grants.gov website.
