The American Friends Alumni Council develops and supports activities that increase the intellectual and social interactions among Humboldtians in the United States. The Council is a standing committee of the Board of Directors, and is comprised of Humboldtians.
Alumni Council Grants
The Alumni Council is looking for innovative ideas to support its goals and objectives to the benefit of the US alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. To encourage US alumni to remain connected, the Alumni Council provides small grants to US Humboldtians to support alumni events and activities. Significant flexibility exists for the types of events to be funded. Examples of events include lunches or dinners with a discussion theme, partial support for a regional gathering of alumni with a substantive program, and seed money for a Kolleg (a regional and interdisciplinary conference).
