Guidelines

Before submitting an application, please read the following guidelines carefully. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions not answered below.

  • The Japan Society Small Grants give priority to projects:

a) Which enhance understanding and awareness of Japan and its culture
b) With an education or youth focus
c) Which include an element of participation
d) Which focus on the local community or take place in the regions

  • Applications should be made by UK based organizations or individuals for projects and events which take place in this country.
  • In making its grants, the Japan Society concentrates its support on projects and events where a small injection of funds can make a real difference. The maximum grant awarded is £1,000 and applications for sums in excess of this will not be considered.
  • In principle, the Japan Society Small Grant should not cover more than 50% of the total budget. The applicant should therefore be able to demonstrate that (s)he has identified other source(s) of funding for the project (including self-finance).
  • Japan Society Small Grants are not intended to cover core production costs. In these cases, the Japan Society support might enable the organizers to extend the reach of an exhibition or performance through support for activities with schools or community groups.
  • We do not, as a rule, provide funding for travel costs to and from Japan.
  • How a given project will contribute to an understanding of Japan is of paramount importance. When submitting an application, please provide sufficient detail to demonstrate that the activity for which funding is being sought will increase understanding of Japan in the community involved.
  • Applications may be made throughout the year; there are no deadlines. In most cases, decisions will be reached within one month of receipt of the application.
