The U.S. Embassy Amman Public Affairs Section (PAS) is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Alumni Grants Program. This is an Annual Program Statement, outlining our funding priorities, the strategic themes we focus on, and the procedures for submitting requests for funding. Please carefully follow all instructions below. Awards will be made to successful applicants subject to the availability of appropriated funds.

Purpose of Alumni Grants: The Public Affairs Section (PAS) at U.S. Embassy Amman, Jordan, administers an Alumni Grants program to support projects initiated by Alumni of programs affiliated with the Public Affairs Section in Amman. Proposals may be submitted by Alumni who have participated in Public Affairs Section Amman-managed exchange programs, Alumni of the English Access Microscholarship program in Jordan, and the Inspire program in Jordan. Awards may be granted up to $25,000.

These grants serve as one-time opportunities to support alumni in their efforts to launch projects that build on their participation in exchange programs. Projects should be designed to be sustainable after the performance period is over.

All alumni grants proposals should demonstrate the following:

  • How the proposed activities develop and share the skills and expertise the alumni gained during their program.
  • How the proposed activities continue the purpose or theme of the alumni’s program
  • How the project benefits other Jordanians.

Alumni proposals may be submitted by a single alumna or alumnus or by a group of alumni who propose to work together on a project.

Participants and Audiences:

Proposals should describe both the primary and secondary audiences for the program, including numbers anticipated to be reached. Primary audiences are those who will participate directly in the program, while secondary audiences are those who will be reached by the project’s primary audiences as a result of their participation. For example, in a teacher training program, the primary audience would be the teachers who will be trained, while the secondary audience would be their students. Audiences who are considered a priority for grants funded under this APS are:

  • Jordanian youth and young adult leaders between 13 and 30 years old.
  • Community leaders and local officials
  • Teachers and academic professionals

Please note that proposals addressing audiences not listed above can still be eligible, but such proposals must clearly indicate why addressing the proposed audience is especially important to achieving the goals stated in Section A of this APS.

This year there will be two submission deadlines; first one is on April 22, 2021 and the second one is on July 8, 2021.  Alumni can request a minimum of $1,000 up to a maximum of $25,000.
