The Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies is pleased to announce a 10-month fellowship program for Ph.D. students in all fields of Japanese studies, generously sponsored by The Nippon Foundation. The Nippon Foundation Fellows Program at the IUC aims to provide the most promising young scholars with the deep linguistic and cultural knowledge needed to become leaders in their fields, and to foster strong collegial bonds and intellectual exchange among them and with their IUC senpai.

• Meet regularly with each other and the IUC Resident Director to discuss their research interests and experiences in Japan
• Invite an IUC alumni scholar to give a lecture at the IUC
• Conduct research during the second half of the program and present their results in Japanese at The Nippon Foundation Fellows Symposium at the end of the academic year
Tuition: The Nippon Foundation fellows will receive a full tuition scholarship and a modest living stipend to attend the 10-Month Fellowship Program of the IUC in Yokohama.
Eligibility: All applicants must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, have a research focus on Japan, and an intention to pursue a career in academia upon completion of their doctoral degree.
