Exchange Alumni

Our U.S. government-funded programs have reached more than 7,500 Uruguayan citizens who have participated in educational, cultural exchange and training activities. These programs give participants an opportunity to obtain knowledge and develop skills in their fields of expertise and to establish valuable contacts.

The U.S. Embassy in Montevideo is committed to supporting alumni by introducing them to resources and facilitating further connections among alumni of U.S. government programs across Uruguay and the world.

Grow, stay connected, and expand upon your exchange experience with Alumni Uruguay!
