Grants Program

Grants Program

The Office of the Public Affairs Advisor manages the U.S. Mission to NATO’s grants program, which is designed to assist non-government organizations and think-tanks that focus on international affairs, defense and security issues, and U.S. and European relations to create programs that encourage public discussions and creative public engagements in Europe that advance U.S. policies regarding NATO.

All available grant opportunities offered by the U.S. Mission to NATO are posted online at www.grants.gov to ensure open competition and transparency.
