Homestay Small Grants Program: The United States Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, through the Office of Public Affairs, is pleased to announce a Notice of funding opportunities for Civic Education programs that address school segregation or other issues that divide students along ethnic lines. These projects should advance education for democracy and human rights in the country and help remove obstacles to integration in education. Small grants competition will support projects designed explicitly as home-stay exchange programs to contribute to democracy and human rights education with interaction and the development of tolerance between the ethnically, religiously and geographically diverse communities of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition to the core exchange program activities, the mandatory requirement is a component of family engagement in which participants will stay in the homes of fellow participants from different ethnic or religious backgrounds, and engage in volunteer projects in both communities. Programs should be innovative and bring together youth (ages 12-24) from communities across ethnic, geographical, and administrative lines and engage a large number of youth in a community improvement activity in each host town. Priority will be given to applicants who engage youth who have had no access to programs funded by US government funding. A detailed budget should be expressed in USD, with a maximum amount of $15,000.
