The Public Diplomacy (PD) Section of U. S. Embassy Tbilisi announces an open competition for Grant Proposals for the administration of the English Access Microscholarship Program (Access), which provides English-language instruction to 13 to 18-year-old disadvantaged students, to include from urban,
rural and/or ethnic minority regions of Georgia.
The Access program is designed to increase English language skills and capabilities among economically-disadvantaged youth.
The English Access Microscholarship Program (Access) provides a foundation of English language skills to students 13–18 years-old from economically disadvantaged sectors through after school classes and enhancement activities.
Access students gain an appreciation for American culture and democratic values, increase their ability to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their country, and gain the ability to compete for and participate in future U. S. exchange and study programs.
The overall objective of the Access program is to enhance the English-language skills of disadvantaged youth and thereby develop increased self-confidence, stronger critical thinking skills and opportunities to study or obtain jobs.
