Civic Education Homestay Small Grants Program
Department of State
U.S. Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina
This small grants competition will support projects designed explicitly to promote interaction and the development of tolerance between the ethnically, religiously, and geographically diverse communities of Bosnia and Herzegovina through home-stay exchange programs. In addition to the core exchange program activities, the proposals should include a component in which participants will stay in the homes of fellow participants from different ethnic or religious backgrounds, and engage both youth and their families in volunteer projects in both communities. Priority will be given to innovative programs that bring together youth (ages 12-24) from communities across ethnic, geographical, and administrative lines and engage large numbers of youth in community improvement activities in each host town. The deadline for submission of proposals is April 08, 2016. To receive application forms and/or more information, please contact DOS at SarajevoHomestayBiH@state.gov, by phone +387 33 704 285 or by fax: + 387 33 704 432.
