Grants of up to $25,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and institutions to support Japanese Studies programs.

Funding may be used for:
- Full-time or part-time faculty, instructor, or staff salaries
- Travel expenses, including per diem and accommodation expenses for scholars, lecturers, and students
- Honoraria for lectures

- Library and digital resource support (lower priority)

Priority will be given to:
- Projects from institutions that face difficulties maintaining current levels of infrastructure
- Projects from small institutions and institutions without an established program of Japanese Studies or those that lack personnel or resources
- Projects that initiate or sustain institutional partnerships, including those in Japan
