Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs -- FY 2018 International Visitor Leadership Program
The Office of International Visitors, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA/PE/V), United States Department of State (DOS), announces an open competition for up to eight assistance awards to administer the FY 2018 International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). Launched in 1940, the IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging leaders. These visits support U.S. foreign policy goals and reflect the participant’s professional interests.
Each project focuses on a substantive theme. Some typical IVLP projects themes are: border security; counterterrorism; democracy and human rights; economic and business development; education; sustainable development; government transparency and freedom of information; international crime; media; rule of law; science and technology; U.S. foreign policy; women’s empowerment, and U.S. government and political systems; however, themes can change based on changes in foreign policy priorities during the period of performance.
Applicants may submit only one proposal under this competition. If multiple proposals are received from the same applicant, all submissions will be declared ineligible and receive no further consideration in the review process.
