Saudi American Educational and Cultural Initiative Grant
The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is now accepting proposals for a new grant called the Saudi-American Educational and Cultural Initiative Grants (SAECIG) and is for Saudi and U.S. non-governmental and community organizations, universities, entrepreneurs, cultural organizations or qualified individuals who propose to work together to develop or expand educational, professional and cultural exchange activities and promote dialogue and partnership between the people of the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The new grant will support innovative forms of collaboration to expand the diversity of activities in the U.S.-Saudi partnership and develop the next generation of leaders, especially among youth, young professionals and women, and to promote mutual understanding and respect through long-term partnership and cooperation between our two countries.
Qualified Saudi and/or American organizations and individuals may submit proposals to the U.S. Embassy on a rolling basis. There is no deadline. Proposals are reviewed on a monthly basis. Proposals approved for funding will be processed and funded based upon the availability of funds.
Requests for funding provided by the U.S. Embassy should be at least $3000 and not more than $25,000; the most competitive proposals will include significant funding from other sources as cost-share in the project budget.
