Program Description

The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition to support the FY 2014 Sports Visitor and Sports Envoy Program. Public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to implement short term, high visibility sports visitor exchanges and sports envoy programs for underserved youth coaches and sports administrators.
