U.S. Embassy to the Holy See: 2018 Call for Grant Proposals

Deadline: 31 August 2018

The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See is inviting organizations to submit proposals for projects for its small grants program to further U.S. foreign policy goals, in particular goals share with the Holy See.

The Embassy prefers to provide initial funding for maximum impact projects that have the potential to be long-term, self-sustaining, and have a multiplier effect. Short-term programs, events, or workshops will also be considered. The project should, when applicable, include a media or public outreach component that promotes awareness for the project, through a press conference, event launch, social media, video, etc.

Preference will be given to institutions with a proven track record of executing high quality events and programs and sound financial management and to proposals that demonstrate the long-term sustainability of the project and have an innovative component. Although not required, some form of cost-sharing with the partner institution(s) is welcomed. New grantees will be generally given priority over previous grantees.

Program Objectives

Grant proposals should promote one or more of the following U.S. Embassy to the Holy See policy objectives:

  • Promoting human rights globally by combatting human trafficking, promoting religious freedom, and highlighting the role of women within the Vatican and Catholic organizations around the world
  • Advocating for peaceful resolution of conflict, conflict prevention, and reconciliation and peace building efforts
  • Countering Russian disinformation among Holy See officials and the broader Catholic community
  • Promoting increased access to food and water and advances in science and health
  • Promoting inter-faith dialogue, cooperation, understanding, and tolerance
  • Supporting refugees and migrants, and other marginalized populations

Funding Information

Embassy grants are unlikely to be more than $10,000, and grant requests for smaller amounts ($2,000-$5,000) are welcome.
