The U.S. Embassy in Pristina, Kosovo announces an open competition for Kosovo-based organizations and institutions to submit applications to carry out program(s) that expands the exchange of ideas and information between the United States and Kosovo by bringing U.S. experts to Kosovo.
The overarching goal of the U.S. Speaker Program is to lay the foundation for long-term, mutually beneficial networking and relationship-building opportunities between U.S. experts, organizations, and audiences in Kosovo through non-formal educational and cultural activities. The program provides a platform for exchanging ideas, information, and best practices through virtual and in-person interactions. This will enhance mutual understanding and support meaningful partnerships and collaborations between the United States and Kosovo.
The primary objective of this program is to empower Kosovans by strengthening their awareness and skills on a range of social and economic issues through cultural and educational engagement. The program seeks to bring U.S. speakers and experts to Kosovo to share American practices and perspectives on these topics, thereby providing youth, emerging leaders, and established opinion makers with new and valuable insights they can apply to their lives and communities.
The program seeks to cultivate a new generation of leaders and thinkers equipped to drive positive change in their communities and beyond by connecting Kosovans with American experts and providing opportunities for meaningful exchange and engagement.
The following organizations are eligible to apply: Not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non-governmental organizations; Public and private educational institutions, registered in Kosovo.
