Requests Outside of the Americas

Olympus entities only make awards for use in their own geographies. So, for example, Olympus Corporation of the Americas will only provide support for programs taking place within the Americas.

Please note that interregional requests, such as a US-based organization seeking support outside the Americas, must be reviewed under an international grants process that involves multiple Olympus entities. We can provide a referral to another Olympus entity if you seek support outside of this region.

Please email ocagrants@olympus.com to request more information for support of programs outside of North, Central, and South America.
