Institutional Grants

The Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission is the chief instrument of the United States Government for maintaining expertise on Japan throughout U.S. academic and professional institutions. In this capacity, the Commission serves to make grants, and operates its institutional grant-making activities in four areas: Exchanges and Scholarship; Global Challenges; Arts and Culture; and Education and Public Affairs.

JUSFC has only one institutional grant cycle per year. The annual deadline for submitting proposals is July 1, 5:00 p.m. EDT. If July 1 falls on a weekend or a U.S. Federal Holiday, the deadline  will always be the following Monday or the next business day, as applicable.
