GrantWatch ID#: 164781
Grants will be made for projects, or a discrete part of a continuing project, that can be completed within one fiscal year (April 1st of one year to March 31st of the following year), with the proviso that funding for discrete parts of a continuing project will be eligible for funding for a maximum of three consecutive years.
Applicants who have received support for three consecutive years become ineligible to receive support for a fourth year under the same program. Other than exceptional projects where TIFO finds compelling reasons for continued support for over three years, a guiding principle of TIFO’s grant policy is not to award grants for four consecutive years. While the Foundation does not regard such applications as ineligible, they are much less likely to receive support.
For multi-year projects of up to three years duration, the Selection Committee will evaluate the project each year and decide whether or not TIFO will continue to extend support.
Eligible applicants are nonprofit organizations capable of performing the proposed project that has or will have a bank account its officially registered name into which to receive the grant.
The following are ineligible and will not be accepted:
1. Applications from individuals
2. Application for expenses to stay in Japan for an extended period
The application period is October 1st to November 30th, 2017.
-November 30th, 2017: Application deadline
-February 2018: Selection Committee selects projects for funding for fiscal year 2018
-March 2018: Approval of the selected projects by the Board of Directors and notification to the applicants
