Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership Invites Concept Papers for Education and Exchange Projects
Deadline: July 1, 2005
The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (<a href="http://www.cgp.org/">http://www.cgp.org/</a>) seeks to promote exchange and collaboration between Japan and the United States with the goal of fulfilling shared global responsibilities and contributing to improvements in the world’s welfare.
The foundation is currently accepting concept papers for the following grant programs:
The CGP Intellectual Exchange Program welcomes proposals from nonprofit organizations for projects that address contemporary social issues of common concern to both the United States and Japan. Intellectual Exchange projects are intended to form new networks among individuals and institutions in the U.S.and Japan by incorporating in- depth policy study with public events and workshops. Most proposals fall into the following thematic categories: international economic relations, international security, sustainable development, and healthcare and aging. Projects involving multinational participation will be considered as long as U.S. and Japanese collaboration plays a central role. CGP will accept three- to five-page concept papers through May 2005. Invited applicants must submit full proposals no later than July 1, 2005. The CGP Grassroots Exchange Program welcomes proposals from nonprofit organizations for projects that address contemporary social issues of common concern to both the U.S. and Japan. Grassroots Exchange projects explore issues such as public health, labor practices, minority rights, social services, and volunteerism through networking, exchange of expertise, and collaborative action among practitioners and researchers in the U.S. and Japan. Please note that art exchanges, goodwill exchanges, and tourist-oriented programs will not be considered. CGP will accept two- to three-page concept papers through April 2005. Invited applicants must submit full proposals no later than July 1, 2005.
The CGP Education Program welcomes proposals from non-profit organizations for education projects that foster understanding and awareness of Japan at the pre-collegiate level in the U.S. Education projects may meet a variety of objectives, such as increasing the availability of resources for teachers, developing new curricula, en- hancing knowledge among teachers and students, linking classrooms in the U.S. and Japan, and bringing together U.S. and Japanese students and teachers. By targeting the student and teacher community, CGP hopes to provide a foundation for deeper mutual understanding, to build a stronger U.S.-Japan relationship, and to nurture a global outlook and active interest in world affairs. Please note that art exchanges, goodwill exchanges, and tourist- oriented programs will not be considered. CGP will accept two- to three-page concept papers through April 2005. Invited applicants must submit full proposals no later than July 1, 2005.
