Asia Wise Education is pleased to offer grants to schools to further educational activities that will enhance their Asia teaching program.
All schools that register more than 60 students in the Asia Wise Project for the grant year.
Any project that will enhance students’ knowledge and understanding about the history, geography or culture of Asia will be considered for a grant.
Schools who receive grants must be prepared to provide a report on the outcome of the program and permission for Asia Wise Education to use photos of the program for promotion of the Asia Wise Project. Schools will also need to provide evidence of expenditure such as receipts.
All projects must be implemented during this school year.

Preference will be given to:
- new programs
- programs most likely to impact on students’ attitudes towards international understanding and cooperation

- how much the school/students will be contributing to the program. (This contribution can be in cash or in other ways such as fundraising)
