Short-term programs, events, or workshops will also be considered. The project should, when applicable, include a media or public outreach component that promotes awareness for the project through a press conference, event launch, social media, video, etc.

Funding Information

Embassy grants are unlikely to be more than $10,000, and grant requests for smaller amounts ($2,000-$5,000) are welcome.
