About the Grants Program
The AUA Mosaic grant is a highly competitive program that is increasing the number of unofficial ambassadors who represent America in all its diversity to the Muslim World. Each year, the program provides grants to support a small number of highly dedicated Americans serving as volunteers or service interns in Muslim-majority countries. Unofficial ambassadors work to meet education, health and other community needs, building people-to-people partnerships through service and then bringing home the value and impact of their service through blogging and community presentations. Mosaic grant recipients give two presentations and must meet all program requirements.
