Daiwa Foundation Awards are between £10,000 and £25,000. They are available to institutions only. The Foundation is looking for innovative, collaborative projects between the UK and Japan that produce tangible, long-term outcomes.
For a project to be eligible for a Daiwa Foundation Awards, it must involve ONLY institutions or organisations based in the UK or Japan. The project must involve two or more institutions/organisations but at least one must be from the UK and one from Japan. One organisation should be designated the Project Leader and the other organisation(s) the Project Partner(s).
Only institutions or organisations can apply for a Daiwa Foundation Award. The Project Leader should apply for the Award and, if selected, will be responsible for its distribution and administration. The Award must be used within one calendar year of it being granted and a report from the Project Leader must be submitted to the Foundation within two months of the project being completed.
