  • Democratic Consolidation: Potential projects include media initiatives related to the development of investigative journalism, media ethics, and media literacy; proposals that provide public affairs training for civil society and the public sector; projects that raise awareness among Tunisians of new constitutionally guaranteed rights; and projects that foster more inclusive participation in Tunisian democracy.
  • Security Capacity: Potential projects include initiatives that seek to counter violent extremism among youth through the arts, sports, community service, debate/dialogue, and/or the development of practical skills.
  • Economic Development: Potential projects include initiatives that promote innovation and STEM entrepreneurship, especially among youth and women; entrepreneurship education, training, networking, mentorship, strategic planning, and marketing; projects that address youth unemployment through the cultivation of marketable skills, including soft skills; proposals focused on community revitalization through the arts and cultural heritage preservation; and projects that foster the business development skills of artists and creative entrepreneurs.

In addition to promoting Embassy goals, all PAS projects must boost people-to-people ties between the United States and Tunisia and/or contribute to Tunisians’ understanding of the United States (policies, society, government, culture, history, etc.). This can be accomplished in many ways including, but not limited to, the participation of American citizens, organizations, and institutions in the proposed project, and the use of American texts, films, art, research, curriculums, or methodologies in the proposed project.

Funding Levels

  • The PAS Small Grants Committee (from now on referred to as “the committee”) meets on a quarterly basis to review proposals received during the previous quarter for support at the level of $10,000 or less.
  • The Embassy Grants Advisory Committee reviews proposals for funding above $25,000, if funds are available.
