These policy-oriented projects explore contemporary issues of global concern and issues common to the U.S. and Japan, which involve cooperation among academics, practitioners, civil servants, and civil society organizations. Successful projects have domestic and international policy impact.

Rent and other administrative costs are not to be included as direct costs; CGP considers these costs to be included within the category of indirect costs. CGP will support indirect costs totaling no more than ten percent (10%) of the actual direct costs CGP supports.
