The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The Abe Fellowship Program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics.
Applicants are invited to submit proposals for research in the social sciences and related fields relevant to any of the following four themes:
• Threats to Personal, Societal, and International Security
• Social, Scientific, and Cultural Trends and Transformations
• Growth and Sustainable Development
• Governance, Empowerment, and Participation
Research projects should be policy relevant, contemporary, and comparative or transnational.
Terms of the fellowship are flexible and are designed to meet the needs of Japanese and American researchers at different stages in their careers.
The program provides Abe Fellows with a minimum of 3 and maximum of 12 months of full-time support over a 24-month period.
Part-time residence abroad in the United States or Japan is required.
- be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Japan. (Nationals of other countries MUST demonstrate a serious, long-term affiliation with research communities in the United States or Japan.)
- hold a PhD or the terminal degree in their field, or have equivalent professional experience at the time of application.
Applications from researchers in professions other than academia are encouraged.
