JFLA is launching a special short-term grant program to assist Japanese-language programs in the U.S. dealing with unprecedented circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Special COVID-19 Relief Grant for Japanese Teaching Materials provides special financial support of up to $2,000 for the purchasing of teaching materials including hardware/equipment (laptops, tablets, etc.) for the purposes of Japanese-language education.
Due to the teaching difficulties posed by the pandemic, many teachers across the country are in need of financial assistance for materials as well as hardware and electronic equipment such as laptops, tablets, etc.
While our regular annual Teaching Material Purchase Grant prohibits the purchasing of electronic equipment, JFLA is making an exception with this special grant program in order to meet the needs of teachers during this challenging time.
In step with making electronic equipment eligible for our grant support, we are also doubling the amount of the grant from $1,000 to $2,000.
This is a limited-time offer only, and recipients of this grant will be expected to complete all purchasing and submit all final grant paperwork by the end of the 2020-21 fiscal year (3/31/2021).
