FY 2020 Notice of Funding Opportunity: Cultural Grants Program

The Embassy continues to offer grants for well-designed and managed projects that encourage and promote cultural and artistic cooperation, collaboration and exchange between the United States and Slovenia.

The focus of successful projects should be the presentation and promotion of American values,

culture, and/or history through art, music, literature, dance, and/or other cultural mediums, to Slovenian audiences.

Projects which demonstrate cultural cooperation between Slovenia and the United States that is indicative of the strong transatlantic relationship between the two nations and their people are of particular interest.

For this grant period, consideration will be given to project proposals focusing on promotion of American values and culture, and presentation of American history, society, art, or other culture.

We are particularly interested in supporting projects that demonstrate the mutually-beneficial, productive, and successful history and/or future of cultural cooperation between Slovenia and the United States that is indicative of the strong transatlantic relationship between the two nations and their people.

Funding for cultural grants is decided through a competitive application process, and each proposal is reviewed by an internal embassy committee.

Funding authority rests in the Smith-Mundt Act and Fulbright-Hays Act, as amended.

PLEASE NOTE:
We recognize that the requirement for all program proposals to include a significant American component may be challenging in some cases given current restrictions that preclude Americans from traveling to Slovenia.

We encourage prospective grant partners to be creative about leveraging of virtual resources, and capitalizing on local expertise during the August 2020 (Cultural or NGO) Grants cycle.

Proposals that do not require the international travel of American artists, specialists, speakers or performers, or which outline an alternative virtual component will be more competitive for the limited funding available.

EXAMPLE:
A cultural program proposes a lecture series on American history for young schoolchildren.

The primary program proposal envisions an American history teacher visiting Slovenia to conduct in-person lectures and teacher training for two weeks.

Ideally, under the circumstances, the proposal should also include a backup plan to use video conferencing in lieu of international travel to conduct the lecture tour, in the event that COVID-19 travel restrictions make international travel impossible.
