Call for Applicants: Sasakawa Studentships at the University of East Anglia, UK

The Centre for Japanese Studies at the University of East Anglia, UK, has once again been invited to submit applications for a number of Postgraduate Studentships from the Great British Sasakawa Foundation. These are available for students pursuing postgraduate (MA and PhD) study with a Japan focus.

Each studentship is worth £10,000 towards tuition fees and living expenses. We particularly encourage prospective 2021 students of our MA in Interdisciplinary Japanese Studies to apply. Our MA was launched in autumn 2020 and offers interdisciplinary insights to foster a new generation of Japan specialists across a wide range of humanities, including art history and cultural heritage, history, literature, international relations, and more. The programme brings together the diverse expertise at the University of East Anglia and the Sainsbury Institute, and students have access to a wealth of resources, including the world-renowned collections at the Lisa Sainsbury Library and the Sainsbury Centre.

In the first instance, please send a brief CV and a statement of interest (up to 500 words), specifying the course you are interested in and your future plans in Japan-related research and activity, to Professor Simon Kaner by 28 February 2021 using the contact form in the link below:
