Wednesday, 25 April 2007
The United Macedonian Diaspora informs our members and other Macedonians that Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Macedonia and its Diaspora department have invited all Macedonians worldwide to apply for grants from the Macedonian government in realization for any Macedonian related projects. The ministry intends to fund several projects that will promote the Macedonian identity, culture and tradition, in efforts to promote the Republic of Macedonia. At the same time, these projects should help strengthen the tie between the Macedonians outside the Republic of Macedonia and Macedonia.
Eligible for these grants are Macedonians that have immigrated in foreign countries, the Macedonian minorities in the neighboring countries, the Macedonians that are temporary in a foreign country, and any other ethnic Macedonians that may or may not have a Macedonian citizenship. All applications must be received by May 31st 2007, and funds will not be distributed until March 2008. The Ministry intends to use this method for long term collaboration and realize projects in the 2008-2010 timeframe. The list of selected projects will be available in the ministry of foreign affairs at www.mnr.gov.mk.
