Deadline: 15 February 2018

The U.S. Embassy in Austria is seeking proposals for its Austrian-American Partnership Fund to support collaboration and cultural exchange between Austrian and U.S. non-governmental organizations, universities, professional associations, arts and cultural organizations.

The goals of the program are to expand the range of educational, cultural and professional cooperation between Austrians and Americans.

Program Areas

The Austrian-American Partnership Fund will fund projects in the following program areas:

  • Entrepreneurship: Fostering connections and sustainable relationships between U.S. and Austrian entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship educators and organizations that promote entrepreneurship, especially among youth.
  • Global Issues: Promote dialogue and debate around issues of mutual importance and interest, such as energy, trade and economic policy, countering violent extremism, human rights and transatlantic cooperation.
  • Arts America: Showcasing young American artists, including performing and visual artists, poets, playwrights, theatrical and film directors and curators, whose work has never been presented or who have not performed in Austria before.
  • American Studies: Building capacity in the area of U.S. studies and enhancing overall understanding of the United States.
  • U.S.-Austrian Relations: During the 2017/18 anniversary period, special focus will be on projects highlighting the 70th anniversary of the Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program (ERP)) in Austria.

Funding Information

Typically, projects budgets range from $1,000 to $10,000, and grant support cannot exceed $25,000; the most competitive proposals will include significant funding from other sources as cost-share in the project budget.
