Small Grants Program

The U. S. Consulate Fukuoka Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U. S. Department of State is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program.

This annual notice of funding opportunities outlines our funding priorities and areas of interest, as well

as procedures for submitting requests for funding.

Please note that this notice supplements specific notices of funding opportunities that may be posted both here and on other relevant sites throughout the year.

Any organization or individual interested in applying for funding should carefully follow all instructions.

The U. S. Consulate Fukuoka is accepting applications for small grants to individuals or organizations to lead an English education program with American cultural content at the Fukuoka American Center, American Shelf partner institutions and/or a public space.

The U. S. Consulate Fukuoka will award a grant of $500-$1,000 to fund a series of events to promote English language education, introduce American culture, and/or to encourage future travel to and study in the United States.

To promote English language, we ask that at least one native-level English speaker is involved in the proposed activities.

Proposed activities might follow the past English learning programs hosted by Fukuoka American Center (please contact the Fukuoka Grants Management to receive the sample session descriptions for English Club and Kids English Learning Program) or propose an alternative model.

Sessions can be held monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly on or after November 15, 2018 for one year.

Sessions must be open to the public and cannot be commercial, trade or charitable activities.

No for-profit organizations can receive funding through these awards.

If awarded, the Grantee will be responsible for coordinating the schedule with the Fukuoka American Center and/or American Shelf partner institutions.

The application should include the activity plan, audience recruitment plan, and budget any anticipated programming costs such as honoraria, transportation fees for organizers and guest speakers, and materials and copier fees for publicizing event.

Proposals will be evaluated on their potential to effectively promote English language, U. S. culture, and U. S. study abroad or travel and tourism.

Keeping Half the Profits Beats Non-profits for Social Impact

Melbourne social enterprise Who Gives A Crap sold nearly 3 million rolls of toilet paper in 2014/15 and gave half the proceeds to WaterAid Australia, but co-founder Simon Griffiths says the donation would have been less had the startup adopted a non-profit model when it launched two years ago.
