Support to American Corners in Iraq: The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to provide equipment, general maintenance, training, daily coordination, and logistical support for program activities at seven existing American Corners (ACs) in Iraq under the strategic oversight and direction of the Public Affairs Section (PAS), U.S. Embassy Baghdad. The seven American Corners are fully operational and located in the following cities; Baghdad, Erbil, Sulaimaniyah, Maysan, Basrah, Najaf, and Dahuk. The Governments of Iraq and the United States are jointly committed through the U.S. - Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement to the establishment of affiliations between Iraqi and U.S. institutions to promote and facilitate coordination in the field of higher education and scientific research. One example of this cooperation is the American Corner information spaces hosted in universities and public libraries across Iraq. The American Corners introduce Iraqi audiences to U.S. culture and society by providing a platform for educational programs and offering access to American print, multimedia, and other materials. The Corners help maintain an open dialogue, counteract misconceptions and misinformation, and build bridges of understanding between the people of the United States and Iraq.
