Funding – Bridging Scholarships for Study in Japan

Who:

What:

  • Bridging Project – a program that actively recruits students twice a year to apply for study abroad programs in Japan.  The goal is to introduce cross-cultural relationships and spark an interest in Japan. You can either spend a year or just a semester there at a Japanese University.  It looks like you choose your program and they help with travel/living if you win.  You have to submit a report within 60 days of the program’s ending to the foundation about your experience.

Who Can Apply?: American Undergraduates interested in Japan and currently enrolled in a US university.  Japanese language study is not a pre-requisite – any major can apply. The study abroad program you choose must transfer the credits back to the US university (be part of your major). SUMMER PROGRAMS ARE NOT INCLUDED.  

How Much?: Approximately 100 scholarships for a total of $350,000. $2500 for semester-programs and $4000 for year-long programs. Intended to help with “travel and living expenses”
