The 2022 Citizen Diplomacy Action Fund (CDAF) for U.S. Alumni is now open

CDAF is a competition that awards up to $10,000 to teams of U.S. government-sponsored exchange alumni to carry out public service projects. As Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, this funding is available to you!  

CDAF is a unique opportunity for exchange alumni to use skills and knowledge learned during the exchange, connect with fellow alumni, and elevate their role as community leaders. Past participants have developed projects that promote media literacy education, build community resilience, foster alumni network development, and engage with issues such as climate change and sustainable development. 

Here are this year’s project themes:

·       Strengthening Democratic Institutions,

·       Protecting the environment,

·       Bolstering outreach to underserved communities,

·       Building community through arts, sports, language, and technology and/or,

·       Fostering alumni network development

Learn more about CDAF HERE, and feel free to share this information with your colleagues, friends, and other professional networks.

Applications are open now through Wednesday, March 30, 2022. Questions? Contact
