The Australia-Japan Foundation’s 2017 Grants Round and 2017 Publication Awards open at 9.00am Monday 6 February and closes at 2.00pm Thursday 6 April 2017 (Australian Eastern Standard Time). This is for applicants seeking grants during the 2017-18 financial year.
AJF Grants and Publication Awards rounds are conducted once each financial year and open around February and close around April with successful applicants notified around late July. Individuals and organisations may apply. Grants are open to both Australian and Japanese applicants.
Generally, the AJF does not fund projects for more than three successive years and it is important that applicants actively explore other funding options to supplement AJF funding. Grant applicants that have supplementary finances or in-kind support from other sources, including the applicant's own resources or corporate sponsors, will be viewed favourably.
Rounds are advertised on the AJF, DFAT and Embassy websites, AJF Facebook and the websites/newsletters of key interest organisations. The AJF’s funding guidelines, including how to apply online, can be found on the AJF website: www.dfat.gov.au/ajf.
