Funding Opportunity: NATO’s 75th Anniversary or General Security/Defense Programming

The U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen announces an open competition for organizations or individuals to submit a statement of interest (SOI) to carry out a program to highlight NATO’s 75th anniversary, or in general to inform target audiences about shared U.S. – Denmark security and defense challenges and solutions.

The submission of the SOI is the first step in a two-step process. Applicants must first submit a concise two-page (maximum length) statement of interest designed to clearly communicate program idea and objectives. This is not a full proposal, but a preliminary submission of program ideas for evaluation. Following a merit review of SOIs, selected applicants will be invited to expand on their program idea(s) by submitting a full proposal. Full proposals will go through a second merit review before final funding decision(s) are made.

Deadline for Applications: March 8, 2024

Total Amount Available: $ 50,000.00

Priority Region: Denmark and the Faroe Islands. For funding opportunities in Greenland, visit U.S. Consulate Nuuk’s website.

Program Objectives: The outcome of the program is expected to raise awareness of the value and importance of the NATO alliance and the U.S.-Denmark bilateral security relationship among Kingdom of Denmark audiences by leveraging the 75th anniversary of NATO. The program should feature shared security efforts between the U.S. and the Kingdom of Denmark.

This can be done through, but is not limited to, seminars, conferences, public events, or speaking engagements.

Participants and Audiences: Key audiences targeted with programming include, but is not limited to, journalists, general opinion leaders, political advisors, or security and defense experts with NATO ties or expertise.

The program is expected to promote accessibility for as wide an audience as possible.
