Priority Region: Ukraine Program Objectives: The U.S. Embassy in Kyiv announces the 2022 Alumni Small Grants Program. Subject to availability of funds, the Embassy will award small grants as described below to alumni of U.S. Government-funded exchanges and training programs. The program seeks to encourage alumni networking, professional development, and civic involvement by supporting alumni-initiated projects that support civil society involvement in Ukraine's reform efforts, encourage tolerance and integration of marginalized or displaced populations, and celebrate the strong links between the people of the United States and the people of Ukraine. Ukraine is continuing its ambitious effort to reform its institutions to bring transparency to governance, reduce corruption, enhance democracy, and grow its economy while pursuing greater integration with Western institutions. Alumni of U.S. government-sponsored professional and academic exchanges have made significant contributions to this effort by sharing skills and best practices acquired during their U.S. exchange experience with colleagues and communities across Ukraine. With funding support from the Alumni Small Grants Program, the U.S. government seeks to support alumni initiatives. Specific thematic priorities are described in detail below. Alumni may apply for grants for the following purposes: To conduct projects that support democratic and economic reform initiatives in Ukraine, and that encourage public participation, discussion and community problem solving; To conduct projects that support or improve the sense of national unity and tolerance for Ukrainians of all backgrounds, as well as promote conflict resolution. To conduct projects that enhance civic and voter education; To conduct projects that encourage connections with populations in and near the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine; To conduct projects that encourage dialogue with and support for internally displaced populations and their new communities; To conduct projects that support English learning and teaching; To initiate a public or community service program; To support alumni association events or alumni networking opportunities; To support alumni activities that strengthen links with Ukraine's Window on America network; To organize training programs or conferences for professional colleagues and/or other alumni.
