Intercultural Cities: Inter-City Grants 2022

Grants

Inter-city grants 2022, Intercultural Cities, Council of Europe. (No deadline; this is an announcement of what has already been awarded.)

“For the third time the Intercultural Cities programme has launched the inter-city grants’ scheme for member cities of the international and national networks. The grants aim to support local innovative projects and methodologies promoting equality, the diversity advantage, and meaningful intercultural interactions in diverse societies. As in the past years, projects involving joint actions of cities have been prioritised with the view to enable peer learning, cross-border or national cooperation across local authorities. The projects aim to test solutions and strategies which can be applied widely across the ICC network in common areas of concern.”

The projects should be of interest to anyone attempting to coordinate activities at a city level, but across city (or country) boundaries.

The Intercultural cities programme (ICC) is sponsored by the Council of Europe; it supports cities in reviewing their policies through an intercultural lens and developing comprehensive intercultural strategies to help them manage diversity positively and realise the diversity advantage.

Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges: Online Information Day

Grants
Online info session: Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges funding opportunity. Online info session on 15 June 2022 from 14:00 to 17:00, Brussels time.

Erasmus+ Virtual Exchanges are online people-to-people activities that promote intercultural dialogue and soft skills development. They make it possible for every young person to access high-quality international and cross-cultural education (both formal and non-formal) without physical mobility. While virtual discussions or training do not fully replicate the benefits of physical mobility, participants in virtual exchanges can still reap a number of the benefits of international educational experiences. Virtual exchanges also help spread European values. In some cases, they can prepare, deepen and extend physical exchanges, as well as fuel new demand for them.

Virtual exchanges take place in small groups and are always moderated by a trained facilitator. They can be easily integrated into (non-formal education) youth projects or higher education courses. Virtual exchanges can draw participants from both sectors, even if, depending on specific projects, they could involve participants from either only one or both. All projects under this call will involve both organisations and participants coming from EU Member States or third countries associated with the programme, and from third countries not associated with the programme.

A call for proposals for funding has just been published, with a deadline of 20 September 2022. It can be found on the Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal. The aim of this info session is to provide information about the call for proposals and to give you the opportunity to ask questions.

UNESCO Silk Roads Youth Research Grant 2022

Grants
Silk Roads Youth Research Grant, UNESCO, Paris, France. Deadline: 31 May 2022.

The call for proposals for the second edition of the Silk Roads Youth Research Grant is now open. As part of the Silk Roads Programme’s ongoing work to better understand the rich history and shared legacy and spirit of the Silk Roads, UNESCO, with the support of the National Commission of the People’s Republic of China for UNESCO, launched the ‘Silk Roads Youth Research Grant’ in 2021 within the framework of the Social and Human Sciences Sector. The second edition has been launched on 1 March 2022.

This initiative, which aims to mobilize young researchers for further study of the Silk Roads shared heritage, will award 12 research grants to young women and men under 35 years of age. Grant applicants are invited to address areas of academic study which relate to the shared heritage and plural identities of the Silk Roads, as well as its internal diversity, and potential in contemporary societies for creativity, intercultural dialogue, social cohesion, regional and international cooperation, and ultimately sustainable peace and development.

US-Japan Foundation: Communication & Public Opinion Grants 2022

Grants

Communication and Public Opinion grants, United States – Japan Foundation for 2022. Deadlines: Letter of interest by January 15, 2022; Full application by March 1, 2022.

The United States – Japan Foundation’s grant program supports projects that seek to enhance communication and mutual understanding between the American and Japanese people. Technology has evolved, and the institutions and topics of conversation keep changing, but the high value of greater awareness and communication among average citizens, as well as leaders in a variety of fields from our two countries is a constant.

The Foundation will consider communication and public opinion projects that not only raise awareness about Japan in the US and/or US in Japan, but also deal with concrete issues that affect the bilateral relationship (or are faced by the two nations). As foreign policy increasingly is subject to public opinion (and is often influenced by non-governmental actors), there is a need in both countries for increased and more diversified coverage of international news and current events, as well as strong links between certain non-government organizations (NGOs) to enhance bilateral and multilateral cooperation.

In addition, since mutual understanding between American and Japanese society requires deeper cultural knowledge, the Foundation occasionally supports documentary films, performances, exhibitions, and lectures that focus on Japanese/American culture. The Foundation also maintains grants in US-Japan Policy Studies.

Priority is placed on projects that include members of various cultural communities working together on projects with common goals; build positive relationships across cultural lines; engender intercultural harmony, tolerance, understanding, and respect; and enhance intercultural communication, rather than cultural isolation, while at the same time honoring the unique qualities of each culture.

NOTE: The geographic areas for this initiative are only Colorado, Hawaii, Minnesota, Wyoming, and limited counties in New York and Texas
