U.S. program to preserve Nigerian culture seeks funding proposals

The U.S. Mission to Nigeria and the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs said on Tuesday that they are seeking proposals for the 2016 Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP), which was created to help nations preserve their cultural heritage and nurture U.S. respect for other cultures.

Projects selected for this particular project will be those deemed capable of helping effect U.S. diplomatic goals and demonstrating respect for Nigeria's cultural heritage. This includes ensuring that cultural sites, objects and ideas that have significance with regard to Nigeria's culture and heritage remain preserved and maintained.

Grants between $10,0000 and $200,000 will be awarded, and proposals can be submitted by logging on to www.grants.gov (enter "Nigeria" in the search field). More information about the grant process and AFCP grant-application guidelines are available at the website.

The deadline for grant submissions is Dec. 31.
