Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program
Grant Opportunities


The goal of the U.S. Embassy’s Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program is to support efforts that promote mutual understanding and cultural dialogue between the United States and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and which share the richness and diversity of American culture and society with the BiH public.  Grants generally range between $1,000 and $15,000 and are awarded to non-profit organizations and institutions for artistic and cultural performances; workshops; guest performers, directors, educators, and speakers; the rights to perform American works; exhibits; etc., that further the goals of the program. You can apply any time, but keep in mind that submitted project proposals will be  reviewed two times annually – after January 31 and after April 30.  Proposals should be submitted 3 to 6 months before the planned event or activity, and the projects should not exceed 12 months in duration.  This notice is subject to availability of funding.
