Who is an alumnus?
An alumnus is someone who has participated in a U.S. Government-sponsored exchange program. The U.S. Embassy in Lusaka administers a variety of exchange programs in Zambia. For more information about our exchange programs, please visit the Education and Professional Exchange Programs page.

If so, join our alumni networks to gain access to numerous resources such as funding opportunities from organizations around the world, access to the eLibrary with more than 200,000 publications, jobs, and volunteer and networking opportunities.

The U.S. Embassy in Lusaka is committed to supporting alumni by introducing them to resources based upon their exchange experience and facilitating the connection of alumni to USG programs across Zambia, post-exchange activities, and access to specialized resources and opportunities.
Opportunities include events such as conferences, lectures, roundtables, discussions, cultural events, training sessions and other opportunities involving alumni-run initiatives.
