Funding Information

Projects may request EF funding of up to $43,000 for projects that focus on various topics, including but not limited to increasing involvement of youth in the social sphere and cultivating their participation in international dialogue; increasing involvement of people with disabilities in social life, employment, and sports; and creating community engagement initiatives to encourage environmental sustainability or otherwise improve quality of life.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Projects must meet the following criteria to be eligible:
    • Projects must address one or more of SEE’s four thematic areas (mentioned above).
    • Projects must include one U.S.-based partner and one Russia-based partner as implementing organizations. Lead partners may also include other organizations/individuals as additional implementers to assist with project activities as necessary.
    • Project applications must be submitted by the U.S.-based partner on behalf of the partnership. EF will only disburse funds to the U.S. lead organization to manage on behalf of the partnership.
    • Projects must achieve clear and measurable impact with equal or near-equal benefit to both the U.S. and Russia.
    • Projects must impact at least 250 direct beneficiaries in each country (500 total).
    • Projects may not directly engage in political activism, public policy reform, or the influence of public opinion.
  • While universities and other research institutions are eligible to apply, funded projects must expand beyond pure research. Projects falling outside the four thematic areas will also be considered for funding if the project will facilitate greater understanding of shared values in the U.S. and Russia. Applicants are encouraged to include innovative methodologies and technologies to accomplish program goals and collaboration between U.S. and Russian peers. Russian federal, regional, state, and local government bodies; government-funded social institutions (e.g. orphanages, nature preserves); as well as federal academic and research institutions are not eligible to serve as project partners (except for student groups, which may do so).
