“Remembering World War II and its Aftermath – A Long Road to Freedom”

World War II Memorial, Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Embassy Budapest Public Affairs Section (PAS Budapest) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce an open competition for organizations and individuals to submit applications to carry out a program (or project) with funding through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program that highlights the 75th  anniversary of the end of World War II and the subsequent long road to freedom in Hungary. Please carefully follow all instructions here: https://hu.usembassy.gov/education-culture/embassy-funding/

PAS Budapest invites proposals for programs that foster truthful recognition and remembrance of the tragedies of the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the long road to freedom that followed.  Proposals should concentrate on recognizing and remembering the complicated totality of national history — they should focus on individual experiences and oral histories, including those involving acts of humanity and resistance as well as cruelty and collaboration in the midst of the Holocaust and Second World War, and under the tyranny of the Soviet Union.

How to Apply

Proposals that do not meet the requirements of this announcement or fail to comply with the stated requirements will be ineligible. In order to be considered for funding, you must submit a proposal via our online proposal form, a budget, and a budget narrative. The online proposal form and sample budget forms are available at our website.


PAS Budapest encourages applications from U.S. and Hungarian:

  • Registered not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non- governmental organizations with programming experience
  • Public and private educational institutions
  • Individuals
  • Public International Organizations and Governmental institutions

Closing date for applications:

June 1, 2020
