Deadline: 11 January 2019

The United States Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, acting through the Office of Public Affairs, has announced a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Interethnic Reconciliation and Youth (IERY) Program for youth small grant projects.

This program supports initiatives with the primary goal of promoting interethnic and intercommunity exchange, collaboration, and joint projects. The Embassy is seeking projects and initiatives that clearly develop increased tolerance and cooperation between the ethnically and geographically diverse communities of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Proposals should engage youth (ages 11-25) who have had no prior access to similar initiatives. The Embassy welcomes all innovative proposals aimed at promoting interethnic engagement, reconciliation, and cooperation.

Priority Themes

  • Entrepreneurship and Youth Employment Initiatives Connecting Divided Communities: Bringing together neighboring or nearby communities that have had little contact since the war to improve youth employment.
  • Fractured Education/Two Schools Under One Roof: Working with parents and students in segregated schools to address issues that divide students along ethnic lines. These projects should help remove obstacles to integration in education.
  • Projects combating disinformation: Bringing young people together across ethnic lines to develop critical thinking, media literacy skills to combat disinformation.
  • Marginalized Groups: Projects that promote cooperation among marginalized minority groups from different ethnic communities, including (but not limited to) displaced persons, persons with disabilities, socio-economically disadvantaged persons, LGBT persons, Roma, and others.

  • Award Ceiling: $25,000
