  • Preservation of traditional forms of cultural expression (e.g., music, film, and artwork) instead of built structures.
  • Projects focused on new excavation. PAS will consider archaeological survey and limited excavation work that is ancillary to the core project. For example, the primary focus is to stabilize or restore a structure, but to fulfill this objective responsibly, some survey and limited excavation in the vicinity of a structure or monument may be required to better inform experts on a structure’s original construction.
  • Construction of new structures or modernization of an existing space. Stabilization, conservation, and restoration of existing historic structures and monuments are not defined as new construction activities and will be considered for funding.
  • Preservation of privately or commercially owned cultural objects or real property.
  • Development of a new website as part of an educational component or outreach.
  • Developing content for an already existing website may be considered.
  • Preservation of natural heritage such as geological formations, habitats of threatened species, or animals and plants.
  • Travel or study outside of Afghanistan for professional development
