JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net’s upcoming “Special Program for Research against COVID-19: SPRAC” is preparing to grant up to USD 50,000 per research project to successful candidates. The research period will last from October 15, 2020 to December 15, 2021.

Following the Japanese fiscal year schedule, the budget will be divided into two settlements as detailed below:

  • The first settlement: October 15, 2020 – March 15, 2021 (5 months)
  • The second settlement: April 1, 2021 – December 15, 2021 (7.5 months)

Within the budget ceiling, the grant receiver can autonomously decide the spending allocation for the first and the second settlement.
Grants for research on COVID-19 are truly essential during this difficult time, where the world is faced with the unprecedented challenge. Hence, our project promises that new funding opportunities will be released to assist researchers and industrial partners with their research activities against COVID-19.

We look forward to receiving applications from you!
