Description

The U.S. Mission to Germany, under the U.S. Alumni Program, is seeking applications for a virtual alumni professional development and networking program. This program aims to involve alumni of U.S. government-funded and U.S. government-sponsored programs by offering a wide range of activities such as speaker programs, trainings, and educational opportunities. The program will be conducted over a minimum of a 24-month period and will be entirely virtual (online) in nature. The program will focus on providing USG alumni with access to information, resources, and networks to leverage their skills and experiences gained through their exchanges. It will also support alumni-driven initiatives that foster greater contact between alumni, strengthen local communities, and promote mutual understanding. Additionally, the program will empower alumni to enhance their skills and knowledge by providing financial support for online courses at U.S. universities, community colleges, and professional schools. The Department of State will have substantial involvement in the program, including the approval of program themes, speakers, and agendas, as well as the selection of special program participants and scholarship fund recipients. Successful applicants should have the capability to organize and host regular virtual events, develop and implement complex and interactive programs, and design activities aimed at fostering entrepreneurship. They should also demonstrate creativity in devising innovative online engagement strategies and the ability to establish an alumni council to act as an advisory body for the programming. The program is open to individuals from Eurasia who have completed a U.S. government-funded or U.S. government-facilitated exchange program. The performance period for the program is 24 months, with an anticipated start date of October 1, 2024. The total available funding for the program is $400,000, with one award anticipated. The funding instrument type is a cooperative agreement, and the Department of State will have substantial involvement in the implementation of the award.
