Activity Report (1995) Charts

The five charts below illustrate in graphic form various statistical breakdowns of the 82 projects supported by Asia Center grants in fiscal year 1995, to give some idea of the focus of the projects supported, and of the grantees who carried them out. Chart 1, Project Focus by Theme, shows the percentage of projects according to the five program priorities that the Asia Center set in its initial year. Chart 2, Grantees by Region, shows where the institutions that received Asia Center grants are based. The reader should not be misled by what looks like a large percentage of grants to Japan-based institution to interpret that as a Japan-centered focus, however. A look at Chart 3, Project Focus by Region, reveals that only a third of the projects were focused on East Asia, including Japan. Chart 4, Project Focus: Single-Country, Bilateral, or Multilateral, further fills out the picture of how Asia Center-supported projects were focused: about an equal percentage of the projects focused on issues in a single country or in two countries; the majority, however, focused on issues in three or more countries. Finally, Chart 5, Grantees by Institutional Type, provides a picture of the kinds of institutions that used Asia Center grant funds: universities, including research institutes affiliated with them; non-profit or non-governmental organizations; independent research institutes or think tanks; professional associations or learned societies; and cultural institutions or agencies, such as museums or libraries.
