The Special COVID-19 Relief Grant for Japanese Teaching Materials provides special financial support of up to $1,000 for the purchasing of teaching materials as well as cultural items (origami, calligraphy supplies, etc.) for the purposes of Japanese-language education. While normally we only offer this grant twice per fiscal year (application deadlines: 3/15 & 9/15), we are adding a third grant period in order to help Japanese-language programs during this difficult time.
*Grant applications must be received no later than 1/31/2021.
