Grant Opportunities for Leading English Education Programs

The U.S. Consulate Fukuoka is accepting applications for small grants to individuals or organizations to lead an English education program with American cultural content at the Fukuoka American Center, American Shelf partner institutions and/or a public space in the Kyushu/Yamaguchi region.
The U.S. Consulate Fukuoka will award a grant of $500-$2,000 to fund a series of events to promote English language education, introduce American culture, and/or to encourage future travel to and study in the United States.  To promote English language, we ask that at least one native-level English speaker is involved in the proposed activities.  Proposed activities might follow the past English learning programs hosted by Fukuoka American Center (please see the Sample Session Descriptions for English Club) or propose an alternative model.  Sessions can be held monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly from November 15, 2019 for a maximum one-year period.  Sessions must be open to the public and cannot be commercial, trade or charitable activities.  If awarded, the Grantee will be responsible for coordinating the schedule with the Fukuoka American Center and/or American Shelf partner institutions.  The application should include the activity plan, audience recruitment plan, and budget any anticipated running costs such as honoraria, transportation fees for organizers and guest speakers and materials and copier fees for publicizing event.  Proposals will be evaluated on their potential to effectively promote English language, U.S. culture, and U.S. study abroad or travel and tourism.
