The Microgrant Initiative for American JETs is funded by the U.S. Embassy Tokyo. This program provides small grants to U.S. assistant language teachers working in Japan on the JET Programme to introduce American culture and English language to students in their classrooms and the local community.
Applications for the 2018-2019 grant year are closed.
Due to the high volume of quality applicants, we will notify all applicants of their application status by December 15, 2018. If you have any questions, you may reach us at email@example.com.
