Small Grants Program

In January 2011 a Small Grants Program was launched with funding from the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, coordination from the Inter-American Foundation, and the technical support from Brazil Foundation. Twelve civil society-led social programs were selected for small grants to further the goals of the Joint Action Plan.

Rosetta Stone Public-Private Partnership

Recognizing the importance of promoting language learning to encourage cooperation, we developed an innovative public-private partnership with Rosetta Stone to provide civil society representatives from both countries working toward the objectives of the Joint Action Plan with a language learning opportunity. At this time, 600 scholarships are being offered, with the objective of having 300 Brazilians learn English and 300 Americans learn Portuguese through the on-line language learning platform. Applications are still being accepted. Learn More»
