FY 2017 Professional Fellows Congress: The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs invites proposal submissions to conduct the 2018 spring and fall Professional Fellows Congress (PFC), the concluding element of the FY 2017 Professional Fellows Program. U.S. public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to conduct a three-day Professional Fellows Congresses in spring and fall 2018. The Professional Fellows Program (PFP) is a two-way exchange program which brings young leaders from civil society and government from around the world to the United States for month-long working placements with U.S. organizations throughout the country. The PFP provides non-U.S. participants with knowledge and experience of U.S. practices and techniques in their field of expertise, while deepening their understanding of U.S. society, culture, and people. Similarly, through their involvement in the PFP, U.S. participants gain a deeper understanding of the societies, cultures, and professional standards of their non-U.S. counterparts. The Professional Fellows Congress brings all non-U.S. participants together at the end of their fellowship program and provides a larger context for their shared experiences, promotes collaboration, introduces them to alumni and other resources, and strengthens the PFP's role as a vital element of U.S. public diplomacy.
