Cooperative agreement to a USA nonprofit organization or IHE to manage international sports exchange programs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to four weeks to complete. Applicants are invited to submit proposals for sports exchange projects designed to reach underserved youth and/or their coaches/sports administrators who manage youth sports programs.
The International Sports Programming Initiative uses sports to help underserved youth around the world develop important leadership skills, achieve academic success, promote tolerance and respect for diversity, and positively contribute to their home and host communities. Sports Diplomacy programs are an important tool for advancing U.S. foreign policy goals through interaction with hard-to-reach groups such as at-risk youth, women, minorities, people with disabilities, and non-English speakers.
Applicant organizations are invited to submit one application to administer one Cooperative Agreement which consists of approximately eleven two-way exchange programs (eleven groups of foreign participants traveling to the United States, and eleven groups of American participants traveling overseas), each lasting a minimum of twoweeks (inclusive of travel), under the Sport for Social Change theme, as listed in Section A.2. Eligible Theme. The cooperative agreement will support approximately 125 foreign youth, sports administrators, emerging leaders in the sports sector, and/or coaches from all six geographic regions (East Asia and the Pacific; Europe and Eurasia; Near East and North Africa; South and Central Asia; Sub-Saharan Africa; and Western Hemisphere) and support approximately 125 American youth, sports administrators, emerging leaders in the sports sector, and/or coaches from all across the United States.
