The Japan Foundation (JF), is pleased to announce the next phase of funding for the "Japan-America Collegiate Exchange Travel Program" initiative.
To facilitate exchange and understanding between Japan and the U.S., the Japan Foundation will provide travel funds to Japan primary for undergraduates and one faculty member. Instructors teaching a Japan-related course at U.S. universities or colleges are invited to apply for a grant to help fund a short-term study-tour to Japan, while incorporating the visit into course syllabi and itineraries arranged to build-on and enrich course contents. The goal is to provide students with firsthand experience that will allow them to gain a more nuanced and balanced understanding of Japan.
$30,000 ($2,000 per student and project director (organizer) plus $2,000 for group expenses)
