Program Description

The Office of Citizen Exchanges of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs invites proposal submissions for the Community Solutions Program in Africa, East Asia and the Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Western Hemisphere. Public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501c3 may submit proposals to conduct this professional fellowship program. Created in 2010 the Community Solutions Program supports and encourages initiatives organized by young civic and community leaders, ages 25-38, working to address the economic, environmental, political, and social challenges confronting their respective local communities. Through four- to six-month professional fellowships with a specific leadership component, Community Solutions will provide opportunities for eligible individuals to more effectively address issues of concern in their own towns, cities and regions.
