Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan

The Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan program is a joint activity of the Japan-U. S. Friendship Commission (JUSFC) and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Awards support research on modern Japanese society and political economy, Japan's international relations,

and U.S.-Japan relations.

The program encourages innovative research that puts these subjects in wider regional and global contexts and is comparative and contemporary in nature.

Research should contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public’s understanding of issues of concern to Japan and the United States.

Appropriate disciplines for the research include anthropology, economics, geography, history, international relations, linguistics, political science, psychology, public administration, and sociology.

Awards usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources.

The fellowships are designed for 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.

Projects may be at any stage of development.
