The Nippon Foundation Fellows Program
Date: September 3, 2018 - June 6, 2019
The IUC is pleased to announce a fellowship program for graduate students with Japan-focused career goals in academia, business, diplomacy/government service, journalism, translation, and law, generously sponsored by the Nippon Foundation. The Nippon Foundation Fellows Program at the IUC aims to provide the most promising students with the deep linguistic and cultural knowledge needed to become leaders in their fields, and to foster strong collegial bonds and intellectual exchange among them and with their IUC senpai.
Nippon Foundation Fellows participate fully in the program of instruction at the IUC, and in addition they:
- Meet regularly with each other and the IUC Resident Director to discuss their research interests and experiences in Japan
- Meet with distinguished IUC alumni at semiannual lectures held in Tokyo
- Deliver a presentation in Japanese at a Nippon Foundation Fellows conference open to the public
