1) Objective

The U.S. Embassy in Kuwait announces an open competition for organizations or individuals to submit a statement of interest (SOI) to carry out a program (or programs) to the Public Affairs section at the U.S. Embassy Kuwait. Proposals shall seek to achieve one or more of the following goals:

  • Prepare students in Kuwait to attend U.S. universities, whether through English or college readiness training, college advising, or other means;
  • Strengthen the ability of marginalized communities, youth, and women to participate fully in the political process and the economy;
  • Improve intellectual property rights awareness and enforcement;
  • Promote people-to-people ties between the United States and Kuwait through educational, cultural, or civic activities that engage youth and young professionals in Kuwait;
  • Foster innovative approaches to solving social, economic, or political issues.
  • Promote community resiliency during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

2) Eligibility

The following organizations are eligible to apply: Not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non-governmental organizations; Educational institutions, provided they are not-for-profit; Individuals.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Kuwait.

4) Budget

Grant proposals must be less than $25,000 each. The total available funding is $85,000.

5) Application

The submission of the SOI is the first step in a two-step process. Applicants must first submit a concise (1-2 pages) statement of interest designed to clearly communicate the program idea and its objectives. This is not a full proposal. The purpose of the SOI process is to allow applicants to submit program ideas for evaluation prior to requiring the development of a full proposal application. Upon a merit review of eligible SOIs, selected applicants will be invited to expand on their program idea(s) by submitting a full proposal application. Full proposals will go through a second merit review before final funding decision are made. Interested applicants should submit a short summary of their proposal along with an estimated budget to PASKuwaitM@state.gov on or before July 31.
