AAS NEAC Japan Studies Grants

Scholarship Description

Research Travel within the USA.  Awards of up to $1,500, including a maximum of $100 for daily expenses, are available to American citizens and permanent US residents who are engaged in scholarly research on Japan and wish to use museum, library, or other archival materials located in the USA.  A portion of the grant may go toward research materials, assistance, and reasonable subsistence costs.  Although these grants are primarily intended to support postdoctoral research on Japan, Ph.D. candidates are also eligible to receive support for doctoral dissertation research at appropriate collections.  Grantees must use American carriers for any transportation to be reimbursed under this program.  Short-term Travel to Japan for Professional Purposes.  Grants of a maximum of 200,000 yen are available to cover expenses in Japan while conducting a specific project explicitly related to Japan, which can be accomplished in the period of time requested.  These grants are intended for short-term research trips by scholars who are already familiar with Japan and with their topic, but who need time in Japan in order to complete their work.  Grantees may not use awards for reimbursement of international transportation under this program, and are expected to seek supplementary funds from other sources.  Grants are made only to people with a Ph.D. or comparable professional qualification.  Ph.D. candidates are not eligible for the program.
