Finding the right partner is crucial for success with the Anglo-Japanese Daiwa Foundation

Top tips

  • The Daiwa Foundation wants to establish and develop UK-Japanese links with all its funding.
  • Finding an institutional partner in Japan can be difficult—but it is essential as it lends credence to claims about how links will be forged.
  • Pay attention to detail in the bid, as Daiwa definitely will.
  • Do not hesitate to discuss a potential bid with the foundation.

The Daiwa Foundation, which started life in 1988, aims to encourage collaborations between the UK and Japan. It runs two grant programmes, which open twice a year: Small Grants are open to individuals and institutions for sums between £2,000 and £7,000, while the Foundation Awards are for institutions only and are for amounts between £7,000 and £15,000.
