Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation Grants

The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation is a UK charity, established in 1988 with a generous benefaction from Daiwa Securities Co Ltd. The Foundation’s purpose is to support closer links between Britain and Japan. It does this by awarding scholarships for young British graduates to undertake a programme of language study, homestay and work placement in Japan; by providing grants to support collaboration between British and Japanese groups and individuals; and by organising a year-round series of seminars, exhibitions and other events at the Foundation’s headquarters in central London.


The Foundation supports a wide range of projects that involve collaboration between the UK and Japan. To find out the type of projects that the Foundation has supported recently, please visit http://www.dajf.org.uk/grants-awards-prizes/recently-funded.

Daiwa Foundation Small Grants are available from £2,000-£7,000 to individuals, societies, associations or other bodies in the UK or Japan to promote and support interaction between the two countries. They can cover all fields of activity, including educational and grassroots exchanges, research travel, the organisation of conferences, exhibitions, and other projects and events that fulfil this broad objective. New initiatives are especially encouraged.
