Public Diplomacy grant proposals must have a connection to American culture and values or should be directed to increasing understanding in Lesotho of American culture and society. Proposals should also be related to one or more of the following U.S. Embassy priorities:

Promote opportunity and development (in relation to Basotho youth and women): promote professional skills and leadership development; encourage innovation and entrepreneurship; support business creation and economic development; create networking, mentorship, and internship opportunities.
Strengthen democratic institutions: encourage active citizen participation in government; promote increased voter participation in democratic processes at all levels; encourage press freedom and professional media coverage; counter misinformation; support actions to combat trafficking-in-persons; and increase attention to minority and disadvantaged populations.
Support Lesotho in reaching and sustaining epidemic control through efforts aimed at maintaining healthy lifestyles; present accurate information on transmission, prevention, care, and treatment; reduce stigma and discrimination; support awareness and dialogue about related issues like LGBTI rights and ending gender-based violence.
All projects must:
Reinforce mutual understanding between the United States and the Kingdom of Lesotho: present accurate information on the U.S.-Lesotho partnership; build connections with Basotho at all levels; support the promotion of Basotho and American cross-cultural heritage, traditional and modern art forms, and other forms of creative expression; and foster English language proficiency.
Build capacity and awareness across the Kingdom of Lesotho: include plans to share information publicly via social or traditional media, hold a virtual public dialogue or networking event in concert with the American Corner in Maseru, and (at a minimum) with one partner location outside of Maseru district to ensure more Basotho have access to public diplomacy programming and grant information.
Adhere to COVID-19 regulations in Lesotho. Programs with virtual components will be prioritized.
