The AAC screens the following programs:
- Research Fellowship (Long-Term)
- Research Fellowship (Short-Term)
- Doctoral Fellowship
- Institutional Project Support Program (IPS) Grant Program
- Institutional Project Support – Small (IPS-Small) Grant Program
Awards are made on the basis of scholarly and professional quality, the project’s contribution to a better understanding of Japanese culture, arts, language, and society, and the project’s potential to stimulate cultural relations between Japan and the world.
Based on the recommendations of the AAC, the final selection of grantees is made by The Japan Foundation Tokyo Headquarters. Applicants are notified of the results in April.
