Deadline: 1 August 2017
The U.S. Embassy in Ireland is pleased to announce an open competition for awards through the Mission’s Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program. This initiative provides support for projects proposed by Irish non-profit, cultural, educational and civil society organizations that aim to promote mutual understanding and shared values; strengthen U.S.-Ireland ties, and foster people-to-people exchange between the United States and Ireland.
Areas of Interest
Particular areas of interest for programming include:
- Investing in young leaders and youth initiatives;
- Supporting peace, reconciliation and cross-border dialogue;
- Promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls globally;
- Responding to the challenge of global climate change and sustainable development;
- Promoting tolerance, diversity and multiculturalism; and
- Promoting economic opportunity through social entrepreneurship.
- Maximum Amount of Each Award: $3,000
- Project and Budget Periods: Generally grant projects must be completed in one year or less. The Public Affairs Section will entertain applications for continuation grants funded under these awards, beyond the initial budget period, on a noncompetitive basis, subject to availability of funds, satisfactory progress of the applicants, and a determination that continued funding would be in the best interest of the U.S. government.
The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Ireland encourages applications from all sectors, and for applicants to provide cost-sharing from additional sources in support of this project. The Public Affairs Section favors projects that use highly-skilled volunteers as an element of cost-sharing. Applications should explain clearly other likely sources of funding and how volunteers will be used.
