Small Grants Program – Overview

The United States Embassy and Consulates in the United Kingdom offers small grants for outreach activities that enhance the understanding of the United States in the United Kingdom.  Applicants need to show how they intend to actively promote an understanding of the United States and how they will engage with UK audiences. The U.S. Embassy London is now accepting small grant proposals within the $1,000 – $15,000 range in the following areas:

  • Countering violent extremism and counter-terrorism
  • Youth leadership with an emphasis on strengthening U.S.-UK collaboration
  • Programs to advance the Special Relationship with priority to proposals outside London and programs not receiving prior U.S. Embassy funding


Please follow the guidelines in the proposal template (MS Word / 3 pages).

Submissions should be emailed to before the announced deadlines below.

U.S. Embassy grant funds cannot be used to supply food, drinks, or for prizes.  Where flights to or from the United States are included, these must (under the Fly America Act) be provided by a U.S. carrier.
