Notice of Funding Opportunity: Identifying Disinformation Symposium in Greenland
The U.S. Embassy Copenhagen announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a symposium on identifying disinformation and relying on credible sources for information.
Democratic nations are increasingly challenged from outside by antagonistic authoritarian powers. Anti-democratic forces use misinformation, disinformation, and other tactics to exploit perceived weaknesses and sow division within and among free nations, erode existing international rules, and promote alternative models of authoritarian governance. Reversing these trends is essential to global security.
To that end, we are seeking programs for a disinformation symposium in Greenland targeted towards Greenlandic university and high school students. Inclusion of audiences in Denmark and the Faroe Islands is encouraged but not required.
Total Amount Available: Up to $50,000
Deadline for Applications: June 30, 2021
Applicants are encouraged to partner with Greenlandic educational institutions in the implementation of the seminar.
Further details are available in the Notice of Funding Opportunity.
