FAWCO as a Resource for You! There are so many benefits and resources available.
FAWCO helps you connect with other expat Americans around the globe, and keeps you informed with helpful news you need to know while living overseas. The website is a great resource; you can sign up for a variety of newsletters about important subjects that affect you (tax and banking issues, voting, citizenship, education, environment, violence against women and children, health issues, global cultures and more). You can also apply for various scholarships for yourself and family members.
Our Club has a FAWCO representative who is available via email to answer any questions.
