Alumni Outreach

Welcome to the U.S. Embassy Baku Alumni Outreach Page!

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) carries out international exchanges that include more than 50,000 individuals annually. These exchanges work to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other nations. The more than one million alumni of these exchange programs build on their exchanges throughout their lifetimes. Engaging and supporting these alumni is a key priority for ECA and for the agency as a whole.

There are more than 5,000 program alumni in Azerbaijan. They are students, scholars, professionals in different fields; they are leaders in different non-government organizations, representatives of government institutions and private companies, professors at the universities and teachers at schools, business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Through the alumni outreach programs, we provide alumni with opportunities to stay connected with fellow alumni, share their knowledge and skills with local communities, and develop their professional capacities upon return to Azerbaijan.

We encourage alumni to help enhance our understanding of the local environments and inform policy making as we provide them the tools to engage their communities in support of mutual goals.
