Within the framework of the Toshiba International Foundation Fellowship programme conducted jointly by EAJS and the Toshiba International Foundation, the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) selects candidates for a fellowship to undertake research in Japan.
The next application deadline is 5 May 2019.
To apply please use our online application system.
Applications are invited for Toshiba International Foundation scholarships for a three-month stay in Japan to be completed by the end of March 2020. Grantees can expect a fellowship of not more than 7.000 EUR.
The TIFO Fellowship programme aims at enabling Ph.D. candidates to pursue research in Japan for their ongoing Ph.D. projects. Applicants must be doctoral students by the time of applying as well as by time of the scheduled research stay in Japan. They should be specializing in any field in Japanese Studies at a European institution. Applications by postdoctoral researchers cannot be accepted. Furthermore, only candidates pursuing their first Ph.D. degree are eligible to apply.
Applications must include:
· A curriculum vitae and a brief statement (not more than 300 words) describing the project for which the applicant wishes to pursue their research in Japan. These two documents are to be submitted by the applicant via the online application system.
· A letter of support from the student’s supervisor or advisor must be sent to the EAJS office separately by the advisor on the student’s behalf. It must be printed on university letterhead and display the advisor’s signature. The letter may be sent by post or in PDF format by email.
Since the purpose of the scholarship is to promote the academic study of Japan by those who have not already had a long-term experience in Japan (i.e. a maximum of two years in total), applications by Japanese High School graduates will not be considered.
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.
Successful applicants have to be members of the European Association for Japanese Studies in order to receive the fellowship.
