The program offers Peruvian exchange program alumni an opportunity to make a difference in their communities by implementing projects of up to one year focused on strategic policy themes that reinforce the relationship between the people of the United States and the people of Peru.

This program will help alumni build on the experiences, knowledge, and skills acquired during their U.S. exchange or U.S Embassy-initiated training programs by implementing projects that apply their engagement to the benefit of local or regional communities.

Other Eligibility Guidelines

  • Alumni may submit only one proposal as a team leader, but may be team members on multiple projects.
  • Preference will be given to proposals that involve other alumni across the country and/or region.
