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.
The following criteria will be used to evaluate proposals:
-- Program Goals/Objectives and Alignment with U. S. Embassy Objectives -- Quality of Project Proposal -- Plan for Measuring Program Effectiveness -- Organizational Capability and Record of Performance -- Summary Budget and Cost Effectiveness -- Key Personnel The review will be done by The Embassy Cultural Grants Committee consisting of panelists who will conduct a review of the project applications using cost-benefit analysis in consideration of a project's potential to advance U. S. policy priorities.
