Public Diplomacy Grant Programs

Overview

The U.S. Embassy Cairo Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State announces that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program. This is an Annual Program Statement (APS), outlining funding priorities, strategic themes of focus, and the procedures for submitting requests for funding for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020, which runs from October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.

PAS Cairo invites proposals from 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 and exchange 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.
