Alumni in Tunisia are eagerly anticipating the next round of the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF.) To help them prepare their project proposals for the 2016 AEIF competition, the U.S. Embassy organized a training on how to write an effective, comprehensive, and competitive proposal. During the session, exchange alumni were introduced the proposal writing process and relevant phases. Alumni also had the chance to learn more about the AEIF competition and requirements. The presence of a team of Tunisian alumni who won a 2015 AEIF grant added greatly to the event. They generously shared their experiences with project development and proposal writing and implementation as well as tips based on the lessons they’ve learned.
