Category Explanation
The U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section (PAS) is pleased to announce that funding is available through the Embassy’s Public Diplomacy grants program for awards. Grants are intended for local representatives of civil society including non-governmental organizations, cultural institutions, universities, schools, and individuals. To receive funding, grants must support one of the following goals: 1. Promote tolerance, by funding proposals that combat hate and build community cohesion; engage at-risk youth; promote digital literacy; and engage communities on respect for diversity. 2. Improve respect for human rights, through programs which strengthen democratic values; enhance awareness and protection of human rights principles; and encourage gender equality. 3. Improve respect for and application of freedom of expression, through programs that promote a free and open media; strengthen understanding of social media; empower journalists through training (including ethics, investigative techniques, and English language). Activities that are typically funded include, but are not limited to: • Youth engagement, leadership, and education programs; • Programs that promote gender equality and the rights of girls and women; • Programs that build the capacity of civil society; • New media concepts aimed at reaching wide audiences; • Media training programs; • Cultural programs; • Radio, television, social media, and film programming in support of the above three goals. Activities that are not typically funded include, but are not limited to: • Projects that do not have a plan for sustaining the activity or monitoring results; • Social welfare or development projects; • Projects that are primarily designed to cover organizational salaries or to cover only an organization’s logistical costs (e.g. rent/mortgage payments, room rental, coffee breaks, etc.); • Costs to complete activities begun with other funding; • Projects that are inherently political in nature or that contain the appearance of partisanship/support to individual or single party electoral campaigns; • Citizen exchange programs with foreign countries; • Political party activities; • Projects that support specific religious activities
