The U.S. Embassy Seoul, Public Diplomacy Section of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program as stated below. Please see attached announcement document in pdf and carefully follow all instructions.  

Program Objectives:

American Corners are partnership projects with host libraries that give the Embassy the flexibility to provide effective programs keyed to our Mission goals and objectives, and to our local audience’ needs and preferences.  The grantee will work closely with host libraries to identify local target audiences in each region and analyze their needs, as well as to plan and conduct PD outreach programs in close coordination with American Spaces Team.  We expect the grant period to run from October 2020 through Fall 2021 (October – November).

All application materials must be submitted by email to AmericanCenterKorea@state.gov.  Enter the “Funding opportunity number” provided above to the beginning of the subject line of the email (i.e.: PD-SEOUL-FY20-03: applicant name).    

Note:  We do not provide any pre-consultation for application related questions that are addressed in the NOFO. Once an application has been submitted, State Department officials and staff — both in the Department and at embassies overseas — may not discuss this competition with applicants until the entire proposal review process is completed.
