How to apply...
For open competitions, the request for proposals is published in the Federal Register.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Funding decisions are at the discretion of the The Department of State's Bureau of Educational And Cultural Affairs and are based on the advice of a panel of Department reviewers and various Department officers. Final technical authority resides with the Bureau's Grants Division.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
