The George and Sakaye Aratani Community Advancement Research Endowment (Aratani CARE) grants are designed to promote projects that will benefit and advance the Japanese American community, as well as strengthen ties between the Japanese American community and UCLA students, staff, and faculty. Applications that include a campus partner (e.g., faculty, staff, students. or alumnae) will be prioritized, as will events or programs where the grantee agrees to acknowledge “The Aratani CARE Grant,” UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center, as a co-sponsor on PR and programs.

Non-profit organizations and qualified individuals are invited to apply for grants that generally range from, but are not limited to, $1,000 to $5,000. Past awardees include the Little Tokyo Historical Society; Kizuna; the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center; the UCLA Nikkei Student Union; and the Pacific Southwest District of the JACL.
