Dept of State Youth Exchange on Social Cohesion

Note: The UIowa OVPR&ED asks prospective University of Iowa applicants to limited Dept of State programs to email as soon as possible a one-page abstract of their proposal with a link to the program of interest to Ann Knudson (link sends e-mail) at UI International Programs Grants Administrator, with a cc to Cheryl Ridgeway (link sends e-mail)  in the UI Office of the Vice President for Research.  If more than two abstracts to this solicitation are received, an internal review will be conducted to select the applicants to submit on behalf of the University of Iowa. 

The Embassy of the United States in London invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement a 14- to 21-day group exchange program to the United States for up to 10 UK-based young leaders ages 18-5 to focus on efforts in the U .S. to counter hate crimes and build community resilience to conflict .  With a strong focus on community and engagement with American interlocutors, UK participants will immerse themselves in U.S. society through discussions, dialogue groups, workshops, site visits, and professional appointments.  Strictly subject to the availability of funds, the U.S. Embassy in London expects to select one program implementer for a grant award from $100,000 up to $125,000.
