Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund 2013
The U.S. Government’s Department of State created the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) to support alumni initiatives that promote shared values and innovative solutions to global challenges. The competition provides small grants to teams of past and current participants of U.S. government-funded exchange programs to carry out public service projects that utilize skills and knowledge they have gained through their exchange experiences.
The third annual Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) launches on April 24, 2013! This year’s competition invites teams of exchange alumni to propose projects to address global issues under project categories including Empowering Women, Outreach to Underserved Communities, Entrepreneurship and Youth Employment, Expanded Access to Education, Environmental Protection, Government Transparency, Freedom of Expression, Conflict Resolution, Citizen Security, and Promoting Civil Society. Winning teams will be awarded up to $25,000 in support of their projects.
Visit the 2013 AEIF pages on International Exchange Alumni (IEA) now to learn all about the competition! All alumni who wish to compete in the 2013 AEIF must be verified members of the IEA website. If you’re not already a member, register for IEA today so that you can start working on your project as soon as the competition starts on April 24!
