Internal Deadline

Monday, June 7, 2021


UArizona may submit one application.

This cooperative agreement will fund the development and broadcast of 30 episodes (from 15 –30 minutes each) to be produced in English, French, and Portuguese on current international topics of which audiences will likely have only superficial awareness. Ten of the thirty episodes should also be produced in Kinyarwanda.  Each episode should be lively, fun to listen to, and take the topic from theory to the personal level. It should feature guest experts from a variety of diverse backgrounds with expertise ranging from on the ground knowledge to PhD level and explain the topic, put it into a global context, discuss what the implications are for listeners’ daily lives, and include the tangible connections with the United States. The episodes should highlight U.S. contributions to the subject matter. There are two aspects of dissemination: first, the podcasts will be hosted on grantee’s website, server, or other digital location accessible to the public; and second, podcasts must be disseminated to community or national radio stations in target countries.
