ABOUT US

The Center for Global Partnership (CGP) was established within the Japan Foundation in April 1991 to promote collaboration between the people of Japan, the United States, and beyond in order to address issues of global concern.

Both the United States and Japan, through their mutual interdependence, play an important role in international politics and the world economy. However, the people and institutions of both countries need to go a step further in order to create a stronger partnership at the global level, to strengthen the stability of the world and to promote the welfare of human beings.

CGP provides funding for collaborative projects conducted by the people of the US, Japan and beyond on global issues, problems common to advanced industrial societies, and other issues that pertain to US-Japan relations.

MISSION

1. To promote collaboration between Japan and the United States with the goal of fulfilling shared global responsibilities and contributing to improvements in the world’s welfare.

2. To enhance dialogue and interchange between Japanese and US citizens on a wide range of issues, thereby improving bilateral relations.

In order to carry out our mission, CGP offers:
- Grant programs to support collaborative projects;
