The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) is pleased to announce the 2021 Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF). AEIF 2021 supports teams of alumni of U.S. government-sponsored international exchange programs with funding from US$ 5,000 up to US$ 50,000 to support public service projects.

AEIF projects promote shared values and innovative solutions to global challenges. Since its

inception in 2011, AEIF has funded nearly 500 alumni-led projects around the world through a

competitive global competition.

In 2021, AEIF will support the United States commitment to empower youth and strengthen

STEAM education in the Dominican Republic, through experiential learning projects that foster

the themes mentioned below.

The U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo will accept proposals for AEIF 2021 that consist of public

service projects proposed and managed by teams of at least two (2) alumni that address one or

more of the below listed priority areas to:

• Engage high school students from underserved communities in science, technology,

engineering, arts, and math (STEM) based programs.

• Engage high school students and/or youth (ages 15-25) on developing solutions to address

climate change, conservation and local environmental issues.

• Engage high school students and/or youth (ages 15-25) on developing solutions to address

current health challenges with innovative and sustainable community focused solutions.
