U.S. Mission South Africa Public Diplomacy Funding Opportunities

The U.S. Mission to South Africa, Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State supports projects and activities that strengthen ties between the United States and South Africa.  We seek projects that highlight shared values and promote bilateral cooperation and meaningful exchange by connecting South Africans to Americans.  Unlike development-oriented programs, we seek to projects that are conceived from a public diplomacy perspective, which means that they promote partnerships and information and knowledge exchange between Americans and foreign publics and institutions to enable more effective, mutually beneficial cooperation with the United States.  It also means that we seek projects that broaden and deepen dialogue and empower cooperation between American citizens and institutions, including civil society and educational organizations, and their South African counterparts.
