The US-Russia Social Expertise Exchange (SEE) is pleased to announce the launch of its 2021 project competition. Teams composed of at least one US and Russian non-governmental organization are invited to propose innovative bilateral initiatives that will benefit both countries and address a common social issue in one of the thematic areas identified below. Project partners must directly engage with communities in both countries to tackle a pressing social challenge and demonstrate how their collaboration resulted in a specific and measurable impact at the end of the project period.

Project teams are expected to be more than a collection of individuals working in parallel. Instead, they should foster dynamic collaboration in which project team members from both countries are exposed to the diverse aspects of each other’s professional expertise and work together toward shared goals.

Projects should provide US and Russian partners the opportunity to work collectively through a complex problem and produce meaningful deliverables. Products may take several forms, including bilingual training curricula, community toolkits, published guides and articles, curated exhibitions, instructional video lessons and webinars, documentary videos, community services and strategic solutions for community needs.

Thematic Areas

  1. Arctic and environmental conservation
  2. Indigenous peoples’ empowerment
  3. Disability and inclusion
  4. Public health (including public health education and intervention strategies to support vulnerable groups)
  5. Open Thematic Area (OTA)

Deadline 11/1/2021
