GrantWatch ID#: 164781

Term of Contract:

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 capable of performing the proposed project that has or will have a bank account in its officially registered name into which to receive the grant.

Ineligible:
- Applications from individuals
- Application for expenses to stay in Japan for an extended period

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for applications is November 30th, 2019, Japan Time.

Selection Schedule
- November 30th, 2019: Application deadline
- February 2020: Selection of projects for funding for fiscal year 2020 by Selection Committee
- March 2020: Approval of the selected projects by the Board of Directors and notification to the applicants

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.
