Overview of the Small Grants Program

The United States Embassy and Consulates in the United Kingdom offer 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.

Examples of previous small grant proposals within the $1,000 – $15,000 range covered the following areas:

  • Enhancing U.S.-UK shared prosperity, particularly through entrepreneurship, enterprise incubator, and apprenticeship programs;
  • Promoting media literacy and resiliency to disinformation;
  • Countering violent extremism and promoting social cohesion, community preparedness and resilience;
  • Youth outreach workshop/curricula to engage the next generation in the U.S.-UK special relationship;
  • Encouraging youth and women in STEM;
