Below are a range of fellowships currently being offered through the
National Science Foundation Japan and Korea Program. For information,
requirements, and application materials, please access the NSF/Tokyo
Homepage (www.twics.com/~nsftokyo/home.html). Specific questions can
be directed to JKPinfo at nsf.gov.

Summer Programs in Japan and Korea

The National Science Foundation (NSF), in conjunction with the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agricultural Research
Service (ARS), administers the Summer Programs in Japan and Korea,
which consists of three separate programs designed to provide
participants first-hand experience in Japanese or Korean research
environments, an introduction to the science and science policy
infrastructure of the respective countries, and language training. The
primary goals of the programs are to introduce students to Japanese or
Korean science and engineering in the context of a research laboratory
and to initiate personal relationships that will better enable them to
collaborate with Japanese or Korean counterparts in the future.  All
qualified graduate students in science and engineering, including the
biomedical, agricultural, and social sciences, may apply. The deadline
for application is December 1.

Research Fellowships in Japan

The National Science Foundation (NSF) nominates researchers for five
fellowship programs administered by the Japan Society for the
Promotion of Science (JSPS) and the Science and Technology Agency of
Japan (STA).  The range of programs allows visits of nearly any length
to Japanese universities, inter-university research institutes, and
over 120 Japanese national laboratories, public corporations, and
non-profit research organizations.  NSF Program officers may apply.
The following fellowships are available:

- JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowships support 12-24 month research stays for
    researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree within the last
    six years
- JSPS Short-term Postdoctoral Fellowships support 3-11 month research
    stays for researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree within
    the last ten years
- JSPS Short-term Invitation Fellowships support research visits to
    Japan of 7-60 days for researchers with a Ph.D. degree
- STA Postdoctoral Fellowships support 6-24 month research stays for
    researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree within the last
    six years
- STA Short-term Fellowships support research visits to Japan of 1-3
    months for researchers with a Ph.D. degree
