Purpose of Small Grants: PAS invites proposals from individuals, non-governmental/nonprofit/civil society organizations, think tanks, government institutions, and academic institutions for projects that strengthen the bilateral ties between the United States and the United Kingdom. All programs must promote at least one U.S. Embassy priority program area (listed below) and include a U.S. element or connection. Programs can include U.S. experts, organizations, or institutions in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policies and perspectives. Special consideration will be given to proposals that highlight the diversity of the United States and programs whose experts represent diverse backgrounds.
Examples of small grants program projects include but are not limited to:
Academic and professional lectures, seminars, and speaker programs;
Artistic and cultural workshops, joint performances, and exhibitions;
Professional and academic exchanges and projects; and
Professional development workshops and training.
Priority Program Areas
Science, Technology, and Innovation: activities that support cooperation in such areas as climate/environment (with a specific focus on activities around COP26), sustainability, cybersecurity, entrepreneurship, and space exploration.
Prosperity, Trade, and Investment: activities that support the expansion of U.S. exports and investments, improve the connections between U.S. and UK businesses, and/or expand economic opportunities for women, youth, and underserved populations.
Security and Defense: activities that promote transatlantic security; combat transnational challenges, including cybersecurity, terrorism, and violent extremism; and encourage resistance to malign influence and disinformation from hostile state actors.
Shared Values and Interests: activities that promote the U.S.-UK Special Relationship and build people-to-people ties, including but not limited to activities that focus on alliances, open societies, and shared democratic values.
