America’s Unofficial Ambassadors would like to thank Qatar Airwaysfor their generous support and continued commitment to the AUA mission!
Qatar Airways has awarded a limited number of vouchers for round-trip airfare from Washington, DC to Jakarta, Indonesia or Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for volunteers in AUA’s Summer Service Internship program.

The vouchers will go to volunteers who apply for merit-based assistance throughAUA’s Mosaic Grantsprogram to fund their service abroad and are valued at between $1200 and $2000.
Winners of these grants must purchase their domestic affair to Washington, DC as well as their domestic affair from Jakarta to Yogyakarta or Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar for their service roles. To qualify, applicants must apply for the Summer Service Internship program before February 15, 2015 with a note in their application requesting to be considered for these grants and must submit the remaining program payments by March 15, 2015.
