The objectives of the Public Diplomacy Grant Program are to:
• promote positive relations between the people of Uganda and the United States;
• reinforce shared values; and
• connect Uganda’s emerging leaders (aged 16 to 35) to the American people.

Funding for approved proposals will not be available immediately.

The allocation of funds can take up to two months once all award paperwork has been completed.

Applicants should, therefore, submit proposals well in advance of the intended project start date.
