The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Research Programs is accepting applications for the Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan program.
The purpose of this program is to promote Japan studies in the United States, to encourage U.S.-Japanese scholarly
exchange, and to support the next generation of Japan scholars in the U. S. The fellowships are designed for individual researchers with advanced Japanese language skills whose research will require use of data, sources, and documents, onsite interviews, or other direct contact in Japanese.
Fellows may undertake their projects in Japan, the United States, or both, and may include work in other countries for comparative purposes.
The program is a joint activity of the Japan-United States Friendship Commission (JUSFC) and the NEH.
