U.S. Embassy in Chile: 2019 Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund

Deadline: 28 February 2019

Do you have a great public service project in mind, but need funding to get it off the ground? Are you ready to use the skills and knowledge you gained during your exchange experience? If yes, then you and your team of alumni could apply for and win up to $25,000 through the 2019 Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund competition.

U.S. Embassy in Chile is seeking applications for its 2019 Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) to provide small grants to teams of past and current participants of U.S. government-sponsored exchange programs to carry out public service projects using the skills and knowledge they gained during their exchange experiences.

Themes

  • Empowering Women and Girls: Projects enhance or support empowerment that creates enabling environments so that women and girls are able to freely and fairly participate in civil society, the economy, government, education, and sports.
  • Fostering Economic Prosperity: Projects promote or develop best practices to nurture more gender-diverse business ownership, as well as innovative ventures that more broadly benefit society. Activities may include skills training, building awareness of job resources, or promoting job creation through information on entrepreneurship or business development. Proposals to create for-profit businesses or directly employ workers are not eligible for AEIF funding.
  • Building Civic Participation, Good Governance, and Resilient Communities: Projects support and promote active citizen participation, observation of the governmental/political process, promotion of good governance best practices, media literacy, volunteerism in community service projects; or help communities build resilience to natural disasters, violent conflict or extremism. Projects that support or oppose partisan political activity are not eligible for AEIF funding.
  • Advancing Science, Technology, Health, and Innovation: Projects promote awareness of and nurture a healthy innovation economy and improves STEM education. Proposals to provide direct social services (i.e. medicine) to a population are not eligible for AEIF funding. Proposals for research projects are not eligible for AEIF funding.
  • Promoting Inclusion and Educational Opportunity: Projects promote opportunity for education, particularly for under-represented or marginalized groups. Projects may also include mentorship programs in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM), or English language.
