Toshiba International Foundation Fellowships 2017

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 15 May 2017.

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 2018. Grantees can expect a fellowship of not more than 7.000 EUR.

Applicants must be doctoral students, and they should be specializing in any field in Japanese Studies at a European institution.

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 encourage the academic study of Japan by those who have not already had a long-term experience in Japan, 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.
