What is KUSA?

Kosovo United States Alumni is a nonprofit association, established in 2007 with the help of the U.S. Embassy in Kosovo and its founding board. KUSA is an association of more than 1300 members that had the opportunity to receive scholarships of U.S. Government-funded exchanges and training programs to study in United States of America. KUSA operates as a democracy that values its members who are making significant contributions by sharing skills and best practices acquired during their U.S. exchange experience with colleagues and communities across Kosovo.
