Get funds to your Program in Vietnam.
The U.S. Embassy Hanoi invites YSEALI members in Vietnam to submit proposals for the 2019 Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) Micro-Grant Program. This competitive program offers grants of up to $1,000 (or more in exceptional cases) to individuals and not-forprofit groups of Vietnamese young people aged between 18 and 35 to conduct programs and activities on topics of Civic Engagement, Education, Economic Development, and Environment. The projects must be implemented in provinces between Quang Tri and further north of Vietnam.
Launched in 2013, the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) is the U.S. government’s signature program to strengthen leadership development and networking in Southeast Asia, deepen engagement with young leaders on key regional and global challenges, and advance people-to-people ties between the United States and young emerging Southeast Asian leaders. Recognizing that over 65 percent of ASEAN’s population is under the age of 35, YSEALI is an effort to harness the extraordinary potential of youth in the region to address critical challenges and expand opportunities.
Eligible projects are evaluated based on the following criteria among others:
- Advancing YSEALI goals or improving knowledge of ASEAN and Vietnam’s role as a regional leader in preparation for Vietnam’s ASEAN Chairmanship in 2020.
- Feasibility, coherent implementation plan, clearly itemized budget, etc.
- Project’s impact and achievability of defined goals.
- Special consideration will be made for projects in underserved provinces.
