Australia Japan Foundation Grant Programme

Funder:  Federal – Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Grant Background: The Australia-Japan Foundation seeks to advance Australia’s engagement with Japan by supporting people-to-people linkages; amplifying and shifting perceptions of Australia in Japan to reflect contemporary Australia; and facilitating the promotion of the inventive, innovative capabilities that Australia brings to Australia-Japan collaborations across broad and ever sophisticated sectors.  The Australia-Japan Foundation also seeks to bring to the fore, awareness of the ongoing vital importance of Australia and Japan on each other’s foreign and trade policies by facilitating informed discussions.

 The objectives of the Australia-Japan Foundation are:

  1. to increase awareness and understanding in Japan of shared interests with Australia;
  2. to increase awareness and understanding in Australia of the importance of Japan to Australia as an economic and strategic partner; and
  3. to increase recognition in Japan of Australian excellence and expertise.

To achieve its objectives, the AJF will prioritise high quality programs particularly, but not exclusively, across any one of the three cross-cutting themes: youth; gender, diversity and inclusion; and innovation.
