FY 2017 Alumni Thematic International Exchange Seminars (TIES): The Office of Alumni Affairs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the administration of the FY 2017 Thematic International Exchange Seminars (TIES). 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 approximately eight to ten regional or sub-regional enrichment seminars for U.S. government-sponsored people-to-people exchange program alumni. The seminars will focus on thematic topics that support U.S. foreign policy priorities and foster a sense of shared identity, networking, and dialogue among participating alumni. The seminars will be three to four days in duration for 20 - 100 participants each, and can take place in any of the U.S. Department of State's six designated geographical regions: Africa, Europe and Eurasia, East Asia and Pacific, Near East and North Africa, South and Central Asia, and Western Hemisphere. ECA anticipates issuing a cooperative agreement of up to $1,750,000, pending the availability of FY 2017 funds. To support efforts of alumni to apply their international exchange and seminar experience within their communities, participants will be eligible to compete for a small grants opportunity of up to $10,000 per project following the enrichment seminar, out of an overall $750,000 grants fund.
