The Japan Research Centre (JRC) is pleased to invite applications to the bursary created through the generosity of Ms Kayoko Tsuda.
There is one bursary of £7,000 (untaxed) to be be paid in three instalments: £3,000 at the beginning of Term 1, £3,000 at the beginning of Term 2, and £1,000 once the applicant’s supervisor informs the Chair of the JRC that the thesis is complete (in the event on non-completion during tenure of the Bursary, this final payment will be withheld).
- PhD degrees at SOAS involving any aspect of Japanese Studies
- Applicants may be of any nationality and in need of the bursary to fund completion of their thesis.
- The bursary is for full-time or part-time PhD students who will submit the thesis before the end of the academic session 2015/16. It is expected that the student who gets awarded this bursary will be enrolled on Extension of Writing up (continuation) status during the academic session 2015/16. Students on Extension of Writing-up status are required to submit the thesis for examination within a maximum of three terms or within the students prescribed SOAS deadline (whichever is sooner).
- Those working on any aspect of Japanese studies are eligible.
