Estimated Size of Grant:

The approximate amount is several hundred thousand to 1.5 million Japanese yen.

Term of Contract:

- Projects should 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.
- 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.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants:
- Non-profit organizations
- Organizations that have or will have a bank account in its officially registered name for the remittance of grant.

Ineligible:
- Applications from individuals
- Application for a lump-sum grant for the same project over a period of more than three years.
- Application for expenses to stay in Japan for an extended period

Applications from companies or business entities with commercial purposes are basically ineligible.

Indirect expenses such as personnel salaries and office rent are not included.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Period: October 1st to November 30th (deadline), 2021 (both Japan time)

Selection Schedule
- November 30th, 2021: Application deadline
- February 2022: Selection of projects for funding for fiscal year 2021 by Selection Committee
- March 2022: Approval of the selected projects by the Board of Directors and notification to the applicants
- April 2022: Submission of Letter of Agreement and Actual Project Plan
- ~March 2022: Project implementation; Submission of Project Report

Applicants who have received support for three consecutive years become ineligible to receive support for a fourth year under the same program. This measure enables TIFO to extend support to as many applicants as possible by de-emphasizing repeated long-term funding to the same recipients. 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 it does not regard such applications as ineligible, they are much less likely to receive support.
