Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Russia organizations and IHEs to address mutual social and environmental concerns. Applicants are required to submit a statement of interest prior to submitting a full application. Projects must include organizations from both countries. Funding is intended to positively impact residents of both countries.

Teams composed of at least one US and Russian organization or higher education institution are invited to propose innovative bilateral initiatives that will benefit both countries and address a common issue in one of the four following socially-oriented themes:

  1. Arctic and environmental conservation
  2. Indigenous peoples’ empowerment
  3. Disability and inclusion
  4. Public health

Projects may request EF funding for projects that focus on various topics, including but not limited to creating initiatives encouraging local conservation efforts in the Arctic and other communities, empowering Indigenous communities, increasing involvement of people with disabilities in social life, employment, and sports; and developing initiatives focused on public health responses for local communities, including marginalized groups.

While U.S.-based universities and other research institutions are eligible to apply, funded projects must expand beyond pure research. Projects falling outside the four thematic areas will also be considered for funding if the project will facilitate greater understanding of shared values in the U.S. and Russia. Applicants are encouraged to include innovative methodologies and technologies to accomplish program goals and collaboration between U.S. and Russian peers.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Project teams may request up to $43,000 in funding.

Term of Contract:

Funding is for a period of six to twelve months.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Projects must meet the following criteria to be eligible:
- Projects must include one U.S.-based partner and one Russia-based partner as implementing organizations. Lead partners may also include other organizations/individuals as additional implementers to assist with project activities as necessary.
- Project applications must be submitted by the U.S.-based partner on behalf of the partnership. EF will only disburse funds to the U.S. lead organization to manage on behalf of the partnership.
- Projects may not directly engage in political activism, public policy reform, or the influence of public opinion.
- Russian federal, regional, state, and local government bodies; government-funded social institutions (e.g. orphanages, nature preserves); as well as federal academic and research institutions are not eligible to serve as project partners (except for student groups, which may do so).
- While partnerships that previously received EF funding are eligible to apply, preference will be given to projects submitted on behalf of new partner organizations. If one of the applying organizations have previously received EF partnership project funding but is now applying with a different partner, this partnership would be eligible to apply.
