U.S. Embassy Cairo PAS Annual Program Statement

The U.S. Embassy Cairo Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program. This is an Annual Program Statement (APS), outlining our funding priorities, our strategic themes of focus, and the procedures for submitting requests for funding for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022, which runs from October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022. 

Program Objectives: PAS Cairo invites proposals from civil society organizations, think tanks, cultural and arts organizations, and academic institutions for programs that strengthen the academic, cultural, and people-to-people ties between the United States and Egypt through programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. All programs must include an American element, or must include connection with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives. Particular consideration will be given to programs with strategic and sustained activities for a duration of 12-18 months, as well as to applications that integrate multiple aspects of U.S. public diplomacy (e.g. American Center Cairo, the Regional English Language Office, alumni outreach, etc.).

Applicants may not submit more than one application per cycle. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact dukeiln@duke.edu as early as possible.

There will be only be two rounds for proposal submissions with the following deadlines: March 31, 2022 and June 2, 2022.
