The grants are open to academic, cultural, educational, and non-profit organizations, as well as individuals, that adhere to the priority areas of interest.

The grants will be awarded in amounts between $15,000 and $50,000 U.S. dollars. The funding authority primarily rests in Smith-Mundt Fiscal Year 2024 Public Diplomacy funding.
