When is the next AJF Grants round?

The 2020-21 grant application round is due to open in February 2020.

AJF Grant rounds are conducted once each financial year, opening early February and closing late March with successful applicants notified around late July. Individuals and organisations may apply. AJF Grants are open to both Australian and Japanese applicants. Follow the AJF Facebook and AJF Instagram for up to date information.

The 2019-20 grant application round closed on 28 March 2019. For more information on the application process, including how to apply online, read the AJF's funding guidelines.

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 Instagram, and the websites/newsletters of key interest organisations.
