Invitation Fellowships for Research in Japan
This program is designed to enable Japanese researchers to invite their overseas colleagues to Japan to participate in cooperative work and other academic activities. Researchers of all countries having diplomatic relations with Japan are eligible. Applications are submitted by the inviting researchers who wish to host overseas researchers in Japan.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR PROGRAM
Host researchers, except for those under Pathway fellowships, are required to use JSPS’s web application system when applying for fellowships. Applications under this program must be submitted to JSPS by a host researcher in Japan via the head of his/her university or institution. Overseas researchers wishing to participate in the program are advised to establish contact with a Japanese or foreign-resident researcher in their field and to ask him/her to submit an application. Applications must be made using JSPS’s prescribe forms.
Host institutions should send their application documents to JSPS by certified mail or other means that allow their receipt to be confirmed.
