Alaska International Understanding Grant Applications will be accepted September 3rd, 2019 - October 17th, 2019

The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF) is now accepting applications from eligible organizations to support education, research, and building cultural connections between Alaskans and other nations. This grant program is made possible through the Irma Scavenius Memorial Fund for Furthering Understanding Between Alaskans and Those of Other Countries. This endowed fund provides education and research grants to promote understanding between Alaskans and those of other nations.

Key Considerations:

To be considered for funding, proposals must focus on efforts to support education, research, and building cultural connections between Alaskans and other nations.

This grant is designed to support program expansion or creation. Grant awards will support specific projects or programs that serve the goals of the fund and are linked to an organization’s primary service.

Additionally, ACF is highly interested in innovative programs that are responsive to community needs, partnerships, and collaborative efforts. Requests that build alliances and promote international peace and diplomacy will be especially competitive. Lower priority is given to equipment requests and duplication of existing programs.

Grant awards through this program will range from $5,000 to $15,000.
