U.S. Embassy Doha PAS Annual Program Statement (APS): PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Embassy Doha Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program. This is an Annual Program Statement, outlining our funding priorities, the strategic themes we focus on, and the procedures for submitting requests for funding. Please carefully follow all instructions below. Purpose of Small Grants: PAS Doha invites proposals for programs that strengthen cultural ties between the U.S. and Qatar through cultural and exchange programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. Applicants must demonstrate how the proposed program enables Qatari audiences to learn more about the United States; its people, culture, and values; and/or its policies. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to demonstrate how the proposed program advances diversity, equity, inclusion, and access. Examples of PAS Small Grants Program programs include, but are not limited to · Professional and academic exchanges and programs; · Academic and professional lectures, seminars, workshops and speaker programs; · Artistic and cultural workshops, joint performances, and exhibitions; and · Cultural heritage conservation and preservation programs. A Special Note on COVID-19: Applicants are encouraged to make their projects flexible to allow for compliance with current and possible future local, national, and international health restrictions in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. This is especially important for projects proposing in-person interactions such as meetings, exchanges, workshops, and others. Applicants may propose such in-person activities but should include alternate activities, e.g., webinars, virtual meetings, and others, in the case that the former are prohibited or impractical at the time the program is proposed.
