Who We are
The Ireland United States Alumni Association (IUSA) is a non-profit voluntary network of alumni of U.S. State Department exchange programmes, including participants of Fulbright Scholarships, International Visitor Leadership Programme, J1 and the Washington Ireland Programme. The IUSA promotes U.S.- Irish relations and develops the next generation of leaders in the U.S.-Irish relationship.
The IUSA is built on a strong network. Set up in 2011, the network has grown accepting even more US – Ireland exchange programmes.
US - Ireland Relations
We want to help build on the learning of the shared experiences of IUSA members. We focus on the diversity and interaction with each cultural exchange programme through the work of the association.
We build exciting and engaging events touching topics from politics to education, from sports to music and more in some of the most exclusive venues in Ireland.
