U.S. Mission to NATO

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on April 15, 2019 in Research Funding

The Office of the Public Affairs Advisor (PAA) at the U.S. Mission to NATO (USNATO) announces an open competition for non-profit, non-government organizations and think-tanks that focus on international affairs, defense and security issues, and U.S. and European relations to submit project proposals. 

Proposals are encouraged to include public, on-the-record discussions and creative public engagements on the major theme of How the Alliance can address new challenges and changing landscapes for the next 70.” All activities should be targeted at European and/or Canadian audiences and should take place in either Europe or Canada unless justification is provided.

USNATO strongly encourages:

  • New and creative approaches that utilize digital technology, social media and other innovative means;
  • Programs that seek to reflect the diversity of thought and background as well as gender balance.
  • Forthright analysis about the gaps in NATO strategies along with practical solutions to address deficiencies.
  • Evaluation components that will help inform the measure of the proposal’s effectiveness, rather than merely its output.

Grant funding cannot be used for salaries, rent, or other general support of an organization, unless these expenses are directly tied to the project.
