The deadline to apply for an FOA grant is November 15, 2010.
Applicaton instructions are now available in:
Please direct your grant application questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check it out! FOA Member Kristi Rendahl (A-5) has a new column in The Armenian Weekly where she explains her many connections to the Armenian community, including her Peace Corps service.

NPCA has organized a contest titled "My Piece of the Peace Corps." Submit a video explaining how the Peace Corps changed your life, and you could win $2,500. The deadline is September 30, 2010 and ANYONE can participate. Visit the NPCA website for more details.
