Education & Exchanges


Learn, exchange, grow, and serve. The U.S. Department of State offers many programs for non-U.S. citizens wishing to come to the U.S. for cultural, educational, or professional exchange. These programs are augmented by local opportunities in countries around that world that allow non-U.S. citizens to explore U.S. culture and the English language.

Information, Research & Communications Section (IRC)

The Embassy has an extended reference, research and news service administered by the Information, Research & Communications Section (IRC) under Public Affairs.

The IRC assists both the general public and the Embassy’s audience. With our specialized knowledge of the United States, we can help you find an answer to a U.S. related question or point you in the right direction for further information.


Small Grants Program

The Public Affairs Section welcomes proposals for funding for cultural programs or other public events that aim to promote the understanding and appreciation of American culture. Any such proposals received by the Public Affairs Section will be reviewed and selected or rejected according to program needs and funding availability.

If you or your organization would like to apply for funding for a specific project,  please visit our grants page to learn more and access relevant documents.

From time to time, the Embassy will also post grant solicitations, where we ask for project ideas within specific topics or issues that we want to support with funding. Make sure you visit our grant solicitations page regularly to stay updated on what opportunities we have to offer.
