U.S.-Russia Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Dialogue Program

Through this Request for Applications (RFA) and with the support of the U.S. Embassy Moscow, EF invites project applications from nonprofit organizations and institutions seeking to expand U.S.-Russian communication and cooperation. EF will fund innovative projects promoting peer-to-peer collaboration and long-term engagement between Russians and Americans on topics of mutual interest. 

Applicants may request up to $50,000 per project with the goal to create or expand U.S.-Russian ties. All project’s activities and deliverables should be completed within 12 months and end before April 30, 2022. Projects proposing U.S.-Russia partnerships between previously unaffiliated organizations will be given priority consideration. 

While universities and other research institutions are eligible to apply to the P2P program, funded projects must expand beyond pure research. Specifically, all P2P projects should include or culminate in concrete deliverable or deliverables, including but not limited to offering newly-developed training sessions, lectures, conferences, video/music productions, art exhibits, performances, etc. 

EF will not fund projects that engage in political activism or lobbying, support public policy reform movements, or seek to sway public opinion about policy. Rather, competitive projects will seek out project topics that can lead to productive international partnership and have potential to spark long-term peer-to-peer relationships. 

Deadline: January 15, 2021
