About the Program
American Councils for International Education is pleased to announce an Alumni Grants Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), to assist past participants of the Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX) of the program years 1994-2019 to contribute to the development of their countries and support their project initiatives.
There are two applications available:
- Travel and Professional Development Grants
- Individual or Group Project Grants
Travel and Professional Development Grants
The FLEX Alumni Travel and Professional Development Grants Program will offer alumni grants of up to $250 to support alumni participation in professional development opportunities, such as conferences and workshops, to develop skills and talents that they can later use to bring back to their communities and alumni networks at home. Projects that include an aspect of sharing what was learned at the training, workshop, conference, with the FLEX alumni or local community will receive preferential treatment in this grants program.
Individual or Group Project Grants
Individual Grants (Up To $250)
These support community service projects, as well as personal or professional development projects. Individual grant applicants who demonstrate in their proposals readiness to share their experience with others in their community upon the completion of their professional development activity will be given preference. These may be single events or small-scale projects. Grants will not be given to reimburse costs already expended.
Group Grants (Up To $3000)
These support professional development or teaching programs, community service activities, promotion of English language and American culture, etc. Not all people participating in the group must be FLEX alumni, but the grant recipient and at least one other project participant must be a FLEX alumnus/a.
