Participant Selection

Alumni TIES participants who are not U.S. citizens are nominated by the U.S. Embassies or Consulates in their countries. Please contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your country to learn how you can participate in Alumni TIES. Potential Alumni TIES participants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents can apply for specific seminars through an online application. The web link to online application will be distributed widely by the Office of Alumni Affairs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and available on this website two months before these seminars.

All participants for Alumni TIES seminars are selected by the U.S. Department of State. When the application is open, U.S. citizen alumni can apply here.
