The U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Saudi Arabia is pleased to announce the Public Affairs Sections (PAS) Small Grants Program 2021.

PAS invites proposals for projects, including virtual programs that strengthen ties between Saudi Arabia and the United States through programs, which promote bilateral cooperation and enhance mutual understanding.

All programs must include an American cultural element or connection with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policies and perspectives.

Utilize This Offer

PAS encourages applications from the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Individuals and registered not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks, civil society / non-governmental organizations with relevant programming experience are encouraged to apply.

For-profit or commercial entities are not eligible to apply.

All organizations are required to register for identification codes with DUNS, NCAGE, and SAM. Note: This requirement does NOT apply to individuals.

PAS’s primary audiences include
• national and regional media;
• public-private organizations, foundations, and think tanks;
• government officials (state, district, and municipal officials; policy makers, civil servants);
• cultural and educational leaders; next generation leaders (e.g., innovators, digital influencers);
• underserved communities; and academic institutions.

Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year and reviewed periodically.

Length of performance period is 6 to 12 months.

Award amounts may range from a minimum of $5,000 to a maximum of $75,000.

Cooperative Agreements are different from grants in that PAS staff is more actively involved in the grant implementation.

Deadline for Applications: Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
