Notice of Funding Opportunity: U.S. Speaker and Specialist Program for Brazil

The U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section in Brasilia announces an open competition to support the U.S. Speaker Program in Brazil. Through this cooperative agreement, the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section in Brasilia plans to support approximately 30-60 traveling and virtual programs, engaging all priority regions of Brazil.

Strictly subject to the availability of funds, the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section in Brasilia expects to select one program implementer for a grant award up to USD $100,000.00.

Given the current uncertainty related to the ability to travel and host in-person events, we are requesting proposals that allow for scaling up/down of activities and that provide virtual alternatives to in-person programming.

Applicants may submit only one proposal under this competition. If multiple proposals are received from the same applicant, all submissions will be declared ineligible and receive no further consideration in the review process.

Authorizing legislation, type, and year of funding: Funding authority rests in the Smith-Mundt Act and Fulbright Hays Act. The source of funding is FY 2021 Public Diplomacy Funding.

The deadline for proposals is June 16, 2021 at 23:59 local time. Proposals must be submitted to Brasilia Public Affairs Section via the following email address:
