The U.S. Embassy Praia Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State announces a Request for Statements of Interest (RSOI) from organizations interested in applying for funding for program proposals that strengthen cultural ties between the U.S. and Cabo Verde through cultural and exchange programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. PAS invites organizations interested in potential funding to submit SOI applications outlining program concepts that reflect this goal. Please carefully follow all instructions below.
Purpose: PAS Praia invites SOIs for programs that strengthen cultural ties between the U.S. and Cabo Verde through cultural and exchange programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. All programs must include an American cultural element, or 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.
Priority Program Areas are:
- English Language Learning;
- Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, with priority given to projects that seek to increase U.S. Businesses’ trade and investment with Cabo Verde;
- Partnerships between U.S. and Cabo Verde institutions committed to education, academic research, and cross-cultural academic exchanges; and
- Strengthen democratic values, specifically social inclusion, transparency, freedom of expression, and freedom of the press.
The Public Affairs Section encourages applications from United States and Cabo Verdean: (1) Registered not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/nongovernmental organizations with programming experience; (2) Individuals; (3) Non-profit or governmental educational institutions; and (4) Governmental institutions.
Actions must take place in Cape Verde.
Awards may range from a minimum of $5,000 to a maximum of $250,000. They want to give 10 awards.
The submission of a SOI is the first step in a two-part process. Applicants must first submit a SOI, which is a concise 2-3-page concept note designed to clearly communicate a program idea and its objectives before the development of a full proposal application. The purpose of the SOI process is to allow applicants the opportunity to submit program ideas for PAS to evaluate prior to requiring the development of full proposal applications. Upon review of eligible SOIs, PAS will invite selected applicants to expand their ideas into full proposal applications. The deadline is Jul 01, 2021.
