The Humphrey Alumni Impact Award

Humphrey Program is pleased to announce annual call for applications for the Humphrey Alumni Impact Award (AIA)! All AIA applications must be submitted by March 15, 2016 to be considered.

The Alumni Impact Awards are jointly funded by the U.S. Department of State and IIE’s Fulbright Legacy Fund. Humphrey alumni are eligible to apply for an Alumni Impact Award of up to $10,000 to implement a project in their home country or region. These grants allow Humphrey Fellows to pursue projects that use the knowledge and skills they acquired during their Humphrey Fellowship year.

The application form, important dates, past awarded AIA projects and all other pertinent information are available on The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Website. Please also find a one-page information sheet (PDF 51 KB) and the Application Form (PDF 152 KB).

Feel free to contact IIE directly with questions and applications.

You need not submit applications to the Embassy.  

The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce the 2017 Book Translation Program.  PAS is soliciting proposals from publishing houses, academic institutions and non-governmental organizations to publish books by American authors in the Kyrgyz language.  The program provides funding for copyright acquisition (if needed), translation, and printing.  We expect to award several grants, with an average award amount of $10,000 to $15,000.  The minimum print run is typically 3,000 copies.  The published books will be distributed by the U.S. Embassy and partners to educational institutions and public libraries in the Kyrgyz Republic.

For this round we are focused on fiction or non-fiction books appropriate for secondary school or university students on topics such as youth issues, women’s empowerment, civic participation, volunteerism, media, leadership, entrepreneurship or environmental issues.  Books appropriate for use in reading and discussion groups or in secondary school or university literature courses are encouraged.

Proposals containing a narrative summary and a budget outline in English should be sent to PAS using the email address below no later than March 20, 2017.  For more information, please contact PAS at the U.S. Embassy in Bishkek, telephone: (0312) 59-70-00 (ext.7698), e-mail: BishkekProjectProposals@state.gov.
