This section of the website offers information and resources for U.S. Government-funded educational and professional exchange program alumni.

The U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs section offers a number of initiatives to support alumni outreach in Tajikistan.  It administers an annual Alumni Grant Program to support alumni-initiated projects aimed at promoting community service and the dissemination of professional knowledge.  The Public Affairs section also issues a quarterly alumni newsletter in order to spotlight alumni success stories, to share information on alumni-initiated activities and events, and to strengthen the network of all U.S.G. program alumni in Tajikistan.
