Guidelines for Proposals
The U.S. Russia Foundation welcomes project proposals from organizations both in the United States and abroad that seek to advance our mission within the designated four areas of funding priority.
In addition to these designated areas of funding priority, USRF has established targeted requests-for-proposals (RFPs) in the areas of Russian and American Studies (formerly Expertise and Knowledge), Civil Society and Rule of Law and Governance. See below for details.
USRF is non-partisan. It does not engage in or fund partisan political activity, partisan training, or training focused on electoral activities.
The Foundation encourages all prospective grantees to engage with USRF staff throughout the proposal submission process for additional guidance and discussion on their application(s).
