The Toyota Foundation is dividing its grant programs into five broad categories. Categories are further subdivided into themes and issues on which research will be conducted. Please be advised that application periods and activation dates differ from program to program. There are no restrictions based on nationality or affiliation.

Asian Neighbors Network Program

This program, operating under the theme “Toward Community Formation Based on Mutual Reliance and Collaboration” and embracing the perspectives of relationships with nature and relationships with people, solicits proposals for practical projects aimed at resolving challenges that face communities in Asia. Three project areas have been established: (1) relationships with nature, (2) culture, and (3) social systems. The program supports efforts to establish networks among neighbors and facilitate the creation of communities, as well as efforts to eliminate obstacles to these activities, and other types of practical projects that incorporate new viewpoints, energy, and insights while maintaining respect for the wisdom embodied in traditional culture and lifestyles.

Research Grant Program
Devoted to the basic theme “The Search for the Richness of Human Life and Activity”, the Research Grant Program solicits proposals for creative and socially meaningful research projects that mesh with this theme. Especially, amid ongoing specialization and segmentation of disparate fields of research, this program supports research incorporating the sort of cross-disciplinary vision that produces organic interaction and leads to synthesis —research activities in which areas that tend to be segmented into opposing categories, such as social and scientific, academic and practical, and tacit knowledge and formal knowledge, interact and become integrated. Based on that premise, the program solicits proposals for research projects in the three areas; “Transmission and formation of culture”, “Society’s frameworks” and “Human ties with nature.” Proposals for projects that fall into more than one of these areas are welcome. Individual research: Up to ¥2 million per project/Joint research: Up to ¥8 million per project. Total Grant: ¥150 million.

There are three categories; (a) revitalizing the local community, (b) promoting symbiosis in the community, and (c) fostering young generations to carry the community forward. Up to ¥3,000,000 per project per year. Total Grant: ¥120 million.
