The U. S. Embassy Santo Domingo of the U. S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations and/or individuals to submit a statement of interest (SOI) to carry out a project which supports LGBTQI+ rights and inclusion.
Please carefully follow all instructions below.
PD projects must include an American element, such as a nexus with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U. S. policy and perspectives.
PD programs/projects should promote communication, engagement, and/or dialogue between the United States and the Dominican public, enhancing people-to-people connections to U. S. society and culture to build goodwill and lasting bonds.
Examples of Public Diplomacy statement of interest proposals include, but are not limited to:
● Academic and professional lectures, seminars and speaker programs; ● Artistic, sports, and cultural workshops, joint performances and exhibitions; and ● Professional and academic exchanges and programs.
The submission of the SOI is the first step in a two-step process.
Applicants must first submit a concise maximum of 3 pages statement of interest 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(s) are made.
