Media Training for Journalists in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region: The U.S. Mission in Iraq announces an open competition for eligible organizations to submit proposals for a cooperative agreement to develop and implement the Media Training for Journalists in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region program. Public Affairs Section (PA) Baghdad seeks to enable Iraqi and U.S. experts to engage with Iraqi audiences, in person and via virtual platforms, on a variety of topics in accordance with Mission Iraq goals through this program. The Media Training for Journalists in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region program will provide five to ten targeted trainings for Iraqi Kurdistan Region-based journalists to improve the overall level of professionalism and adherence to ethical standards. Trainings should focus on key demographics such as women, ethnic and religious minorities, journalists at religiously-affiliated media outlets and journalists from outlets considered primary news sources in regions recently controlled by ISIS. Proposals may also include virtual U.S. speakers and experts, and must include in-person U.S. speaker(s) or expert(s) to participate in the Sulaimani International Film Festival and, if funds are available, the Duhok International Film Festival. Subject to the availability of funds, the Embassy expects to award one grant up to $100,000 to carry out the Media Training for Journalists in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region program. Authority: Overall grant-making authority for this program is contained in the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, Public Law 87-256, as amended, also known as the Fulbright-Hays Act. The purpose of the Act is “to enable the Government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries...; to strengthen the ties which unite us with other nations by demonstrating the educational and cultural interests, developments, and achievements of the people of the United States and other nations...and thus to assist in the development of friendly, sympathetic, and peaceful relations between the United States and other countries of the world.” It is PA Baghdad's intent to award one grant for up to $100,000.
