About the Program

Did you study or participate in a U.S. government-sponsored educational or professional exchange program? Do you have a project you would like to undertake that would benefit your community or strengthen the relationship between American and Kyrgyz citizens?

The U.S Embassy in Kyrgyzstan announces the fall 2019 cycle of Alumni Small Grants Program 2019. The small grant program is open to all citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic who are alumni of a U.S. government (USG) or U.S. Embassy education or exchange program. The small grants program aims to support innovative, small-scale projects or initiatives that will strengthen local communities, foster positive relationships between the United States and the Kyrgyz Republic, and promote mutual understanding of the core values promoted by USG exchange programs.


The application deadline is 05 July 2019 at 17:00 Bishkek. The Embassy will award grants in early August 2019 on a competitive basis, depending on the availability of funds.
