Did you know that you are a member of the Federation of American Women's Clubs Overseas (FAWCO) by virtue of your membership in AWBS? Well, you are!
What this means for you:
- You have access to the worldwide FAWCO representative directory. You could use the directory to locate someone local for your next relocation, or you could identify a fellow expat American to serve as an emergency contact in the country of your next exotic trip.
- You have access to the FAWCO website. All you need to do is register. On the site, you will find information on important expat issues, such as U.S. citizenship, absentee voting and taxation.
- You have access to additional educational support for your college-bound children in the form of the American Cultural Education (ACE) Task Force, which has useful information about applying to universities, as well as lessons and activities to teach American children growing up overseas about American culture.
- You and your college-bound children are eligible to apply for scholarships through the FAWCO Foundation. Deadlines each year are in January.
FAWCO is an international network of independent organizations whose mission is:
* To serve as a resource and channel of information among its members;
* To provide a voice for American women abroad and to support the rights of all Americans worldwide;
* To contribute actively to the global community with a specific focus on education, the natural and human environment, multicultural understanding and international goodwill.
