This is an Annual Program Statement (APS), outlining our funding priorities, our strategic themes of focus, and the procedures for submitting requests for funding for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021, which runs from October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021.  Please carefully follow all instructions below, and please note that the date for final submission of proposals is July 15, 2021.  Awards will be made to successful applicants subject to the availability of appropriated funds.

Purpose of Small Grants: PAS Cairo invites proposals from individuals, civil society organizations, think tanks, cultural and arts organizations, government institutions, and academic institutions for programs that strengthen the cultural ties between the U.S. and Egypt through cultural programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. All programs must include an American cultural element, or connection with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives.
