Grant Opportunities

  • The U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section (PAS) Dublin invites Statements of Interest (SOI) for projects that 1) strengthen U.S.-Irish security cooperation, 2) stimulate shared prosperity by boosting Irish investment in the United States, or 3) strengthen shared values that foster the unique Irish-American relationship. All programs must directly support one of the three priority themes and should include a connection with American experts, organizations, or institutions in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives.

    Examples of PAS Grants Programs include, but are not limited to:

    • Academic and professional lectures, seminars, and speaker programs;
    • Artistic and cultural workshops, joint performances and exhibitions; or
    • Professional and academic exchanges and projects

    The proposal selection process is highly competitive. If you are successful with your Statement of Interest proposal, you will be asked to complete required registrations and submit a full grant proposal on mandatory application forms. Most successful applications achieve grant funding of $1,000 - $2,500.
