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 only to make grants. It does not operate its own programs. It relies on the academic, non-profit sector to organize and operate programs of training, research and exchange. The Commission operates its institutional grant-making activities in four areas: Exchanges and Scholarship; Global Challenges; Arts and Culture; and Education and Public Affairs.

The U.S.-Japan Creative Artists Program is not included in the institutional grants process. It is a separate program funded by the Commission in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. This program is for individual artists to pursue a residency in Japan.
