Deadline: 1 August 2019
The U.S. Embassy, Bucharest is pleased to announce its Grant Program entitled “Learning the History of Communism”.
This Program is open for non-profit Romanian organizations and institutions, with activity and experience in the field of education and civic engagement, and with no political affiliations, to apply for a grant of up to $90,000 to develop a curriculum on the history of communism.
The overall goals of the program are to educate young people about the history of communism and its impact on various spheres of life in Romania, public and private; to help students develop their critical thinking skills and relate to history in a meaningful way; to deepen students’ insight into how non-democratic regimes may use democratic institutions in order to establish and maintain themselves; and to encourage students to develop informed opinions and act as responsible citizens to support democratic practices within society.
The project should be designed to train a group of ten trainers – selected through competition – to teach based on this curriculum, and organize two one-week summer camps for 75 undergraduate university students each from all fields of study and representing all parts of Romania, to learn about the history of communism.
The program should be planned for a 15-month period, to start in October 2019, include one event in December 2019, such as a two-day seminar. A summer camp should be planned to take place before the end of August 2020; the program must include follow-up activities to be conducted by each of the ten trainers and 150 students by the end of November 2020.
