This document contains both general priorities for Germany-wide projects as well as regionally-focused projects in Berlin/Brandenburg and from each of Mission Germany’s five consular districts.

If your organization is considering an application for a regionally focused project, please consult the specific Consulate’s priority program areas in this document.The submission of a concise Statement of Interest (SOI) is the first step in a two-step process.

Applicants must first submit a short, concise project concept (no longer than 1,000 words) designed to clearly communicate program idea and 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.Eligible programs include but are not limited to workshop series and experiential learning events, speaker events, exchanges, and awareness campaigns.

All proposed programs must include an American perspective, societal or cultural element, and/or connection with American experts, organizations, or institutions in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U. S. policy and viewpoints of American citizens.

Additionally, programs must include public outreach components, such as livestreaming, traditional media, digital outreach, or events open to the public.

Special consideration will be given to proposals targeting audiences with little exposure to the U. S. Applicants can request Embassy participation.
