Readers in Thailand may be interesting in the next funding round for the US Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation. Deadline is Jan 8, 2023.
The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok and Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State are pleased to announce the call for proposals for the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) 2023 Grants Program Funding Opportunity.
Since its inception in 2001, AFCP has helped preserve cultural sites, cultural objects, and forms of traditional cultural expression in Thailand and around the world. Cultural heritage endures as a reminder of the contributions and historical experiences of humanity. By taking a leading role in efforts to preserve cultural heritage, the U.S. shows its respect for other cultures. AFCP-supported projects include the restoration of ancient and historic buildings, assessment and conservation of rare manuscripts and museum collections, preservation and protection of important archaeological sites, and the documentation of vanishing traditional craft techniques and indigenous languages. AFCP projects strengthen partnerships between U.S. and Thai institutions.
Under the AFCP Grants Program, the minimum funding available for individual projects is US$10,000 per project and the maximum amount is US$500,000 per project. The deadline for submitting concept notes is January 8, 2023.
