U.S. Embassy Windhoek announces Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program for Namibians

Deadline: 1 March 2019

The U.S. Embassy Windhoek Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State has announced that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program.

Themes

  • JUDICIARY AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
    • Programs that will work hand in hand with the Government of Namibia to improve their abilities to effectively plan and implement policies for wildlife conservation.
  • SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP
    • Programs that promote policies that incentivize the private sector to take more risk, and support small businesses and entrepreneurship.
  • ECONOMIC GROWTH
    • Programs related to innovation and women’s empowerment.
  • SOCIAL ISSUES
    • Programs that seek to promote a better understanding of human rights and diversity and inclusion.
  • ENGLISH TEACHING
    • Programs that promote teacher training in areas related to English teaching, or those that enhance English learning among Namibian youth.
  • EDUCATION
    • Programs related to building capacity of Namibian learners or educators, or programs building linkages between American and Namibian institutions of higher learning.

Project and Budget Periods

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.
