Program Objectives

Through Alumni TIES, participants will:

  • Increase engagement among U.S. government-sponsored exchange alumni to establish shared identities.
  • Have current information about U.S. foreign policy on strategically important issues and use the acquired skills and knowledge to address global challenges.
  • Be better equipped to apply their exchange experiences and contribute to the civic life in their home communities.

Program Design

Alumni TIES seminars take place in six world regions and the United States; each seminar is three to four days for small groups of alumni. The seminars include expert speakers, interactive trainings, participant-led discussions on the seminar’s theme, and alumni networking activities. Through the small grants program, alumni have the opportunity to take action and make a positive difference in their communities.
