U.S. Mission to South Africa: Call for Project Abstracts for AFCP 2018 Large Grants Competition

Deadline: 19 January 2018

The U.S. Mission to South Africa is seeking project abstracts for the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) 2018 Large Grants Program.

The AFCP Large Grants Program supports the preservation of major ancient archaeological sites, historic buildings and monuments, and major museum collections that are accessible to the public and protected by law in the host country.

Funding Information

Individual awards can range from the floor amount of $200,000 to the ceiling amount of $500,000 per project.

Funding Priorities

The AFCP Large Grants Program gives top priority to project activities that are appropriate and in keeping with international cultural heritage preservation standards. An appropriate preservation activity is one that protects the values of the site. Stakeholders may include national, regional, or local cultural authorities; the local community; and others with vested interests in the site and the outcome of a project. Appropriate project activities may include:

  • preventive conservation (addressing conditions that damage or threaten the site)
  • stabilization (reducing the physical disturbance [settling, collapse, etc.] of a site)
  • conservation (addressing damage or deterioration to a collection or sites)
  • consolidation (connecting or reconnecting elements of a site)
  • anastylosis (reassembling a site from its original parts)
  • restoration (replacing missing elements to recreate the original appearance of a site usually appropriate only with fine arts, decorative arts, and historic buildings)

How to Apply

  • The application process for the AFCP Large Grants Program takes place in two rounds:
    • Project Abstract (Round 1)
    • Full Proposal (Round 2)
  • Proposals must be submitted via email at the address given on the website.

Eligible Country: South Africa
