Open to: graduate students specialising in some branch of Japanese studies at an institution in Europe
Scholarship: 7000,- Euro for a three-month stay in Japan
Applications are invited for three Toshiba International Foundation scholarships for a three-month stay in Japan to be completed by the end of March 2011. There are three scholarships, generously funded by the Toshiba International Foundation, and each is worth 7000,- Euro.
Applicants must be graduate students or their equivalent who have completed four or more years of full-time study, and they must be specialising in some branch of Japanese studies at an institution in Europe.
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. Applications should be sent by e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 closing date for applications is 30 April 2010, and the decision will be announced by mid-June. 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.
