Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Russia organizations and IHEs for bilateral projects to address mutual social concerns. Projects must include organizations from both counties. Funding is intended for projects that improve the quality of life for residents in both countries.

Through this Request for Applications (RFA), Eurasia Foundation’s (EF) U.S.-Russia Social Expertise Exchange (SEE) invites statements of interest from U.S. organizations seeking to establish collaboration with Russian partner(s) in joint pursuit of solutions to social issues of importance to both countries.

Teams composed of at least one US and Russian organization or higher education institution are invited to propose innovative bilateral initiatives that will benefit both countries and address a common issue in one of the four following socially-oriented themes:

  1. Social inclusion
  2. Technology and innovation for social good
  3. Social entrepreneurship
  4. Youth engagement

Projects must meet the following criteria to be eligible:

  • Projects must address one or more of SEE’s four thematic areas (Social Inclusion, Technology and Innovation for Social Good, Social Entrepreneurship, and Youth Engagement).
  • Project applications must be submitted by the U.S.-based partner on behalf of the partnership. EF will only disburse funds to the U.S. lead organization to manage on behalf of the partnership.
  • Projects must achieve clear and measurable impact with equal or near-equal benefit to both the U.S. and Russia.
  • Projects must impact at least 250 direct beneficiaries in each country (500 total).

While universities and other research institutions are eligible to apply, funded projects must expand beyond pure research. Projects falling outside the four thematic areas will also be considered for funding if the project will facilitate greater understanding of shared values in the U.S. and Russia. Applicants are encouraged to include innovative methodologies and technologies to accomplish program goals and collaboration between U.S. and Russian peers.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Project teams may request up to $43,000 in funding.

Term of Contract:

Funding is for a period of up to twelve months.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Projects must include one U.S.-based partner and one Russia-based partner as implementing organizations. Lead partners may also include other organizations/individuals as additional implementers to assist with project activities as necessary.

Russian federal, regional, state, and local government bodies; government-funded social institutions (e.g. orphanages, nature preserves); as well as federal academic and research institutions are not eligible to serve as project partners (except for student groups, which may do so).

Projects may not directly engage in political activism, public policy reform, or the influence of public opinion.

Pre-Application Information:

To participate in the competition, all project teams must submit their statements of interest no later than 11:59 pm EST on January 23, 2020 via EF’s online application form.

All applicants must use EF’s online grant management system. The application process has two stages. The only document required in the first stage is a statement of interest.

If this is the first time that an applicant has applied to an EF funding opportunity using the online grant management system, a representative from the organization must create an account on the grant management system by following the instructions on the right of the login page linked above. If an applicant already has an account, they may simply log in without creating a new account.

Upon review of initial applications after January 23, 2020, prospective statements of interest will be invited to submit full funding applications.

Semi-finalists will have a chance to consult directly with the SEE team during the full application process.
