Toshiba International Foundation Grants 2018 for Non-Profit Organizations

Toshiba International Foundation Grants 2018 for Non-Profit Organizations

Deadline: November 30, 2017

Applications are invited for the Toshiba International Foundation (TIFO) Grants 2018. TIFO strives to contribute to enhanced international understanding of Japan by promoting cultural exchanges, including the organization and sponsorship of symposia and seminars. The TIFO supports projects and divides them into the following four categories:

  • Symposia and seminars
  • Cultural programs
  • Research and studies
  • Programs that train students who will promote international understanding of Japan

Japan earned considerable ill-feeling during the nineteen-eighties and nineties due to their excessive exports. Toshiba believed that the root of the problem lay in the lack of understanding between the country and the rest of the world. Therefore, Toshiba International Foundation was established in 1989 to enhance communication and promote mutual understanding. In the years that have passed since then, the Foundation has supported a wide variety of projects throughout the world to foster better relations between Japan and other countries.


  • Applicants
    • Non-profit organizations capable of performing the proposed project that has or will have a bank account in its officially registered name into which to receive the grant.
