Grants to USA and Japan nonprofit organizations for initiatives, exchanges, and studies related to US-Japan policy. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application.

Based on the strong response to and ongoing relevance of the 2021 Disruption and Resilience theme, that theme will be continued in 2022. As in 2021, thematic grants will continue to present opportunities for a diverse range of individuals, sectors and disciplines to address issues of mutual consequence to American and Japanese societies. The Foundation will favor projects submitted by partnerships of Japanese and American applicants. Recipients of thematic grants will be fully informed about the contents of all other successful thematic applications. All awardees will be expected to interact in biannual gatherings (virtual) organized by the Foundation. Sharing resources, methodologies, discoveries and critiques, each thematic cohort will be expected to devise a method of communicating its relevant insights to specialists and general audiences.
