The Daiwa Foundation which supports closer links between Britain and Japan is seeking applications from individuals, societies, associations and schools under its small grants programme.
Grants of £2,000 – £7,000 are available to promote and support interaction between the two countries. Daiwa Foundation Small Grants can cover all fields of activity, including educational and other projects and events. New initiatives are especially encouraged.
Projects that have received funding in the past include:
Beckfoot School (Bingley) which received a grant of £3,000 to support a two-week curriculum-based school exchange visit by ten students and two teachers to Hiroshima Kokusai High School.
Dene Magna School which received a grant of £4,000 to support a school exchange visit by three teachers and nine pupils to enhance links established in 2002 with two partner schools in Okinawa and to consolidate Japanese as part of its curriculum.
The next closing date for applications is the 31st March 2017.
