K-12 teachers.


The United States-Japan Foundation supports innovative
projects that help young Americans and Japanese learn
about each
other’s society, culture, and country as well
as learn to
work together on issues of common concern. The
Foundation focuses
on K-12 education and throughout its history
has been at the
forefront of supporting teacher professional
development projects
that train US teachers to teach about Japan
and Japanese teachers
to teach about the United States. In
addition, the Foundation funds
projects that work directly with
students, that develop top quality
curriculum materials on
America or Japan for educational audiences
in the other country,
that connect schools and classrooms in the US
and Japan, and
that develop and improve instruction in Japanese

The Foundation seeks to respond to needs at the
level as identified by experts in US-Japan education
practitioners in the field. We are open to diverse
for engaging teachers and students in the study of
Japan and the
United States that range from history, art, and
music to science
and society (please see our recent grants
section for examples of
projects we have funded). The Foundation
also proactively leads
efforts to develop educational programs
and projects when a
significant need is discerned.
