Grant projects generally must be completed within one year or less. PAS will entertain applications for continuation grants funded under these awards beyond the initial budget period on a non-competitive basis subject to the availability of funds, the satisfactory progress of the program, and a determination that continued funding would be in the best interest of the U.S. Department of State. Applicants should consider their budgets carefully and submit a budget commensurate with their project goals. While PAS will consider proposals up to US $25,000, projects that are smaller in scope are more likely to be considered.
