Grant Opportunity: The United States-Japan Foundation’s Pre-College Education Programs

Posted on June 02, 2016

Do you teach Japanese literature, culture, and society in your classroom?

The United States-Japan Foundation supports projects that aim to build mutual knowledge, understanding, and communication between students in the Japan and the United States in its Pre-College Education Program. From Philanthropy News Digest:

Through its Pre-College Education Program, US-JF supports programs that take advantage of new technology to bring Japanese and American teachers and students together; build human networks among teachers on both sides of the Pacific with a mutual interest in teaching and learning about Japan, the U.S., and U.S.-Japan relations, particularly in the fields of social studies and Japanese-language instruction; and invest in programs in regions in both countries that have been underserved in terms of exposure to and resources for learning about the other country.

Letters of intent for grants for this fall are due by July 15th. Full proposal guidelines and information about the application process are available on the United States-Japan Foundation’s website.
