Due Date: 6.8 2018. The Public Affairs Office of the U.S. Embassy provides grants to American or Slovene groups and individuals for the promotion of the American culture abroad.
The Embassy has historically been most interested in projects relating to: cultural exchanges; artistic and cultural performances; exhibitions; workshops; lectures; readings; or cultural projects whose aim is to promote and deepen the understanding and appreciation of American culture in Slovenia.
Applications will be accepted from professional artists and professionals in the cultural field who are American or Slovene citizens or residents and from not-for-profit arts or cultural organizations or institutions registered in the United States of America or in Slovenia. Special consideration in regards to this last requirement may be given to applications from younger American artists.
The maximum available for a cultural grant is $10,000, although most grants average between $3,000-$5,000.
The evaluation of applications will be based on artistic quality, fiscal responsibility, cost-effectiveness, American content, length and variety of the proposed project and the relevance of the locations to U.S. current foreign and trade policy and, finally, the ability of the applicant to undertake an international project.
