The Ambassadors Fund was established by the U.S. Congress in 2001 to help countries preserve their cultural heritage and to demonstrate U.S. respect for different cultures around the world. Last year grants ranged from US $24,000 to US $174,000. The minimum amount of an award is $10,000, and the maximum is $200,000.  

The deadline for submitting proposals in English to the U.S. Embassy in Chisinau is 5:30pm on Friday, December 29, 2017. Recipients will be notified of the results in summer of 2018. 

The Ambassadors Fund supports projects to preserve cultural heritage in the following three categories:

A) CULTURAL SITES, that include (but not limited to) historic buildings and archaeological sites. 
Proposals in this category may involve, for example, conservation of an ancient or historic building, preservation of an archaeological site, or documentation of cultural sites in a region for preservation purposes. 

B) CULTURAL OBJECTS AND COLLECTIONS from a museum, site, or similar institution that include archaeological and ethnographic objects, paintings, sculpture, manuscripts, and general museum conservation needs. 
Proposals in this category may involve, for example, conservation treatment for an object or collection of objects; needs assessment of a collection with respect to its condition and strategies for improving its state of conservation; inventory of a collection for conservation and protection purposes; the creation of safe environments for storage or display of collections; or specialized training in the care and preservation of collections. 

C) FORMS OF TRADITIONAL CULTURAL EXPRESSION that include traditional music, indigenous languages, and crafts. 
Proposals in this category may involve documentation and audiovisual recording of traditional music and dance forms for broad dissemination as the means of teaching and further preserving them, or support for training in the preservation of traditional arts or crafts that are threatened by extinction.
