The Open World Leadership Center awards grants to a wide range of U.S.-based nonprofit and governmental organizations to host Open World delegations. The Center selects its host organizations through a competitive grants process conducted according to federal guidelines. All successful candidates have expertise in implementing professionally oriented foreign exchange programs. Some grantees carry out Open World visits themselves or through their local affiliates; others develop and oversee a network of local organizations to provide this hosting. These local organizations include civic associations, academic institutions and centers, and nonprofit international training providers.

The Open World Leadership Center is not accepting grant applications at this time.
