The U.S. Embassy in Argentina has launched its Mission’s Public Affairs Small Grants Program to support projects proposed by Argentine individuals and educational and cultural non-profit institutions that seek to strengthen the bilateral ties between the United States and Argentina.
Priority Funding Areas
The Grants Program seeks to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the United States and Argentina by awarding grants to Argentine non-profit organizations and individuals for projects that address the following priority areas:
- Promote U.S: Argentine Shared Values
- Projects that promote U.S. culture, including music, history, sports, education, or the learning/teaching of English.
- Activities, workshops, and speaker programs that strengthen U.S.-Argentine ties and increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and Argentina.
- Projects that support educational exchange, the internationalization of higher education, and U.S. – Argentine partnership in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) among Argentine youth. Priority will be given to projects that encourage social development and help reduce inequality, especially among marginalized populations
- Strengthen Prosperity
- Reinforce Democracy, Freedom and Transparency
- Programs that promote good governance, open data, and more transparent democratic institutions.
- Projects that support human rights, racial/ethnic equality, gender equality, women’s empowerment, diversity and social inclusion as part of a strong civil society.
- Programs related to freedom of the press that improve the quality of investigative journalism and transparency, and that help counter disinformation.
- Grants cannot be used to fund religious activities, partisan political activities, fundraising campaigns; commercial projects or for-profit ventures, individual academic research projects, construction projects, or projects whose primary objective is an organization’s institutional development or an individual’s personal enrichment or career development.
Note Once a project is approved, the administrative process to receive funds takes a minimum of two months. As such, proposals tied to a specific date or event should take this timeline into account.
Eligible applicants include Argentine not-for-profit organizations registered in Argentina, including non-governmental organizations, individuals, educational/cultural institutions, and governmental organizations.
