What is the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP)?
The Center for Global Partnership (CGP) was established within the Japan Foundation in April 1991 to promote
collaboration between the people of Japan, the United States, and beyond to address issues of global concern.
CGP provides funding for collaborative projects conducted by the people of the U.S., Japan, and beyond on global
issues, in addition to issues common to advanced industrial societies, as well as other issues pertaining to
U.S.-Japan relations. https://www.jpf.go.jp/cgp/e/about/index.html

What other opportunities or support does CGP offer aside from grants?
CGP offers some individual funding opportunities (see answer to above question for details).
In addition, Japanese nationals may apply to become a JOI (Japan Outreach Initiative) Coordinator.
Do you provide support for high school exchanges?
While high school exchanges fall within our mission to strengthen US-Japan relations, CGP does place these projects on a lower priority.
Please note that all US-based applicants must have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status to apply for any of our grant programs.
