Who is an Alumnus?

An alumnus is someone who has participated in a U.S. Government-funded exchange program.  The U.S. Embassy in Mali administers a variety of exchange programs for Malians, including the Fulbright Program, International Visitors Program, Humphrey Fellowship Program, and the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Program.  For more information on our exchange programs, please visit the Educational Exchange page.

Alumni, Keep in Touch!

All participants in U.S. Department of State exchange programs are invited to join State Alumni, the global online community by and for alumni. Launched in 2001, the State Alumni website enables alumni and the people who hosted them in the United States to network and stay in touch with each other.

By simply registering a username and password with the site, you can access an alumni listserve, a calendar of events, grant opportunities, career development resources, and links to useful information such as online journals. You can also search the database of State Alumni community members to find colleagues, friends, and alumni with similar interests or participate in monthly online events.

This interactive site is tailored to its users, who are encouraged to participate in creating the content. Alumni can post their own news, events, resumes or links.

To register, please visit the State Alumni page.

For more information on alumni activities and associations in Mali, please contact Embassy Bamako’s Alumni Coordinator. We look forward to hearing from you and for helping us to make Mali’s alumni network a strong and vibrant one.
