PAS Brussels invites proposals for projects that strengthen ties between the United States and Belgium by using an extensive alumni network. They offer alumni of State Department exchange programs and local programs in Belgium the opportunity to propose innovative projects that address one of five U.S. foreign policy themes or projects that build up alumni engagement. Applicants may collaborate with alumni from other countries for activities that advance regional priorities, but Belgium must figure prominently in the program or activity. These projects enhance the leadership capacity, convening power, and community engagement of alumni and alumni networks.

Priority Program Areas

  • Programs that demonstrate active partnership between the United States and Belgium to address new and evolving security challenges via a shared history.
  • Programs that support a long-term investment in U.S.-Belgian ties through educational, cultural, professional, and other exchanges between two countries.
  • Programs that facilitate economic ties between the United States and Belgium, including through entrepreneurship.
  • Programs that have a national reach and impact by linking like minded organizations across linguistic and regional divides.
