Optional Inquiry:
1. Please describe briefly how the Japan Foundation Fellowship experience influenced your career.

Answer: The Japan Foundation Fellowship was vital to my career as a professor of East Asian history, of course specializing in Japan. I could not have completed my dissertation field research in Japan without the fellowship and thus could not have advanced to complete my doctoral degree. I continue to look to Japan Foundation fellowships to support speakers and events on my campus. I am very thankful for this organization.

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.
