The three core concepts of the quickly approaching Tokyo 2020 Games are: “Achieving Personal Best,” ‘Unity in Diversity,” and “Connecting to Tomorrow.”
At the heart of these concepts are diversity and inclusion, sustainability, and peace and prosperity, which Japan hopes to exemplify to the world this summer.
The Embassy welcomes proposals that address these issues and is particularly interested in supporting the following priority areas: social inclusion and diversity; economic and environmental sustainability; and regional security.

All proposals must include collaborative works with American institutions or professional artists, exchange components, and serving Japanese audiences with little access or exposure to American culture and expertise.

Preference will be given to those proposals that are geared toward and engage youth.

Performance period: Up to 24 months.

Awards range: 5,000 (min) to 75,000 USD (max).

Anticipated program start date: by May 31, 2021.

Eligibility: a) Not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/NGOs; b) Public and private educational institutions; c) Public international organizations and governmental institutions; d) Individuals.

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and attests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your proposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
