Alumni Small Grants Program 2021/22

Call for First Phase Project Proposals

Kosovo United States Alumni officially announces the 2021/22 Alumni Small Grants Program funded by the U.S. Embassy in Kosovo. Subject to availability of funds, KUSA will award small grants up to $7,000.00 to alumni of U.S. Government-funded exchanges and training programs. With funding support from the Alumni Small Grants Program, the U.S. government seeks to support alumni initiatives.

These projects will bring Kosovo United States Alumni to engage with Kosovo citizens by discussing topics of strategic importance to Kosovo. Successful proposals will bring together alumni of U.S. government-funded exchange programs to work on a project together.

The application process consists of two phases: phase I and phase II. Phase I consists of a general application where the applicant describes the overall project idea. Shortlisted project proposals will be invited to submit a detailed application for Phase II.

To be eligible to submit an application, project leaders must be alumni of a U.S. government-funded exchange program including, but not limited to IVLP, SUSI, Fulbright, Humphrey, Ben Franklin, TLP, Access, YES, KYEP, UGRAD, Ron Brown, Marshall Center, and KAEF.

We invite all KUSA members to apply for project grants!
