Grant for Research Collaboration

Friends of UTokyo, Inc. (FUTI) is committed to furthering the educational and research goals of FUTI by awarding grants and scholarship awards to non-profit organizations (typically universities and research institutions) in the U.S., and students and scholars in the U.S. and Japan, whose activities will help further globalization of UTokyo (the University of Tokyo), its faculty members and students.

Grant (up to $10,000) to a project/activity to be jointly pursued by UTokyo and Institution(s) in the U.S. will be considered. The project/activity may be, for example, a conference or workshop, a travel grant for a graduate student or researcher who will participate in a joint project with UTokyo, etc. Because of FUTI’s limited budget, use of the grant for a faculty salary is not allowed.

Preliminary letter of intent or inquiry: Before you prepare and submit an application, you are encouraged to submit a brief informal letter of intent or inquiry. Based on such preliminary information, the FUTI grant selection committee will respond to you on whether your proposed project is within the scope of FUTI’s intended activities.


If you have already submitted a preliminary letter of intent or inquiry and have been requested by FUTI to submit a grant proposal, please submit a Grant Proposal Application Form
