On behalf of the Toshiba International Foundation, the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) selects candidates for a fellowship to undertake research in Japan.
The next application deadline is 10 May 2013.
Applications are invited for Toshiba International Foundation scholarships for a three-month stay in Japan to be completed by the end of March 2014.
Applicants must be doctoral students, and they should be specializing in any subject of Japanese studies at a European institution.
Applications should consist of a CV, a brief statement (not more than 300 words) of the project for which they wish to pursue their research in Japan, and a letter of support from the student’s supervisor or adviser, who should submit the application on the student’s behalf. For applications, please use our online submission system at www.eajs.eu , which will be accessible after 1 April 2013.
Since the purpose of the scholarship is to encourage the academic study of Japan by those who have not already had a long-term experience in Japan, applications by Japanese High School graduates will not be considered.
The EAJS has been asked by the Toshiba International Foundation to administer these scholarships, and the decisions will be made by the Council of the EAJS.
