Heisei 30 "Learning Town Collaboration Project" Recruitment Notice

Kyoto City and the University Consortium Kyoto are implementing the "University Community Collaboration and Support Project (nickname: Learning Town Collaboration Project)" by granting support money to projects and projects in which universities, students, and the local community collaborate to develop Kyoto's city and revitalize the region.
It has been implemented since the 16th academic year with the aim of developing human resources by securing practical education and research opportunities for universities, and solving and revitalizing local issues through the knowledge and vitality of students for the region, and this year is the 15th year.
We will start recruiting for Heisei 30, so please check the following guidelines and apply.

It is now easier to apply for the NEW ≪Cultural Frame≫!

 From this fiscal year, applications for cultural quotas may be adopted in the general category.

 As for the judging, the contents of the project are examined in the same way for both the general and cultural frameworks, and only the cultural framework is examined from the viewpoint of the contribution of the student's "culture" to the community.

★ What is the Cultural Framework?

In March 28, it was decided to completely relocate the Agency for Cultural Affairs to Kyoto. Taking this opportunity, we have established a "cultural framework" in the learning town collaboration project from FY29, and we are expanding activity expenses for creating and transmitting printed materials and videos in response to efforts to "disseminate" diverse cultures from Kyoto.

 For the purpose of solving local issues and revitalizing Kyoto City, projects that meet the following requirements (all of (1) and (2) for the general quota and (1), (2) for cultural framework) to be implemented in Kyoto City during the 30th fiscal year (from the date of adoption to the end of March of the following year) are eligible.
