In addition, the USA Grant program will launch a new Solicited USA
Grant Initiative focusing on six countries as they relate to USIP's
mandate: Colombia, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Sudan.
Applicants may apply at any time throughout the year.
Under both initiatives, applicants may seek funding for research,
educational, training, and related projects implemented both in the
U.S. and abroad, although preference will be given in the Solicited
USA Grant Initiative to applications that originate in Colombia, Iraq,
Nigeria, Pakistan, and Sudan. Priority will be given to initiatives
focusing on Iranian relations with the West and with its neighbors in
the region, and on Iran's role in regional and international affairs.
Nonprofit organizations, public institutions, and individuals in the
U.S. and abroad may apply for either initiative
