Grant Aid for Cultural Grassroots Projects (GACGP)

Japan Information and Culture Centre is now accepting applications for Grant Aid for Cultural Grassroots Projects (GACGP).

As a means to ensure better response to a variety of increasing needs at the grassroots level in the fields of culture and higher education in developing countries, the Government of Japan introduced a scheme called the Grant Assistance for Cultural Grassroots Projects in 2000. It is intended to assist the projects of local governments, private higher educational institutions or research institutions and NGOs to cover the cost for procurement of equipment, construction and improvement of facilities, or the subsidy for transportation costs (e.g. incurred in transport of pre-owned judo uniforms, etc). In principle, approximately up to US$100,000 is extended per project.
