Deadline: 16 January 2018

The Professional Fellows Division in the Office of Citizen Exchanges at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) invites proposals for the FY 2018 Professional Fellows On- Demand Program.

The Professional Fellows On-Demand Program will build upon the foundation of the current Professional Fellows Program and prior Professional Fellows On-Demand Program exchanges.

Goals

  • To provide timely support for emerging foreign policy priority issues where existing public diplomacy resources are not immediately available or accessible;
  • To create lasting partnerships between emerging leaders from foreign countries and the United States in specific and substantive areas of focus;
  • To provide opportunities for foreign and American emerging leaders to collaborate and share ideas, approaches, and strategies regarding challenges to pressing issues;
  • To enhance professional and leadership skills for both foreign and American participants to effect positive change in their workplaces and communities.

Funding Information

Application budgets are limited to $2,000,000 direct costs and must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
