Optional Inquiry:

Answer: My doctoral dissertation research would not have been possible without the Japan Foundation Fellowship. The year that I spent at Tokyo University helped form my field of study (classical poetry and painting) and gave me the training required to complete my Ph.D. degree at U.C. Berkeley. My current position as Professor of Japanese at U.C. Davis is a direct result of this training.

2. The Japan Foundation is planning to create a network or forum among past Japan Foundation fellows. Please let us know if you have any suggestions in terms of themes, format, etc.
