Open Competition for the Professional Fellows Program: The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA/PE/C) announces an open competition for grants to conduct a Professional Fellows Program in Africa, East Asia, Europe, the Near East, North Africa, South Central Asia and the Western Hemisphere.

The goals of the program, which encompass both bureau and programmatic goals, are to: 1) provide foreign participants from eligible countries the opportunity for professional development through four- to eight-week internships in the U.S; 2) provide U.S. participants the opportunity to take part in reciprocal fellowships and/or to share their professional expertise with counterparts in eligible countries; 3) promote mutual understanding and partnerships between key professional groups in the United States and counterpart groups in eligible countries. Proposed projects should be two-way exchanges involving participants from both the U.S. and foreign countries. Projects should take place over the course of one to two years and target current or potential professional leaders who will effect positive change in their communities. Specific themes for consideration under this competition include: climate change, education to employment, food security, global health, and legislative development. Eligible countries and guidance for each theme are provided in Section I.7 below. Proposals that target themes and 2 countries not specifically authorized in this Request for Grant Proposals will be considered technically ineligible.
