U.S. Embassy Prague invites institutions, organizations and individuals to submit projects for funding up to USD $15,000. Please visit our website here for more information. The deadline for applications is December 1, 2017 midnight (local time).

U.S Embassy Prague held a special centennial grant competition earlier this year and awarded several projects. Due to an overwhelming and positive response/interest from our partners we have decided to repeat this thematic grant round. All of the projects awarded through the centennial grant rounds will be tied into a year-long celebration of U.S.- Czech relations starting in January 2018. All activities related to Centennial programing can be found on our website.

As U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson noted in his October 28 message of congratulations to the Czech people, “the United States is proud to have stood beside the Czech people on your journey to independence, and we remain your steadfast partner today.”
