NBR Japan Studies Research Fellowship Information Session

NBR hosted a virtual information session about the Japan Studies Research Fellowship Program on TMarch 28, 2023.

The U.S.-Japan relationship is critically important in preserving a free and open Indo-Pacific, and the challenges both countries face require serious consideration and a deeper understanding on the part of scholars and policymakers alike. To address these needs, NBR has established the Japan Studies Research Fellowship to cultivate a new generation of U.S.-Japan specialists and leaders and to build stronger bridges between the United States and Japan. Fellows explore how the U.S.-Japan relationship must evolve to meet the demands of today, gain a broad understanding of the geopolitical shifts within the Indo-Pacific, and apply their expanded knowledge within a cutting-edge, policy-oriented environment.

The program consists of an intensive, three-month research and professional development program designed for current undergraduate, community college, and graduate students who are interested in or focus on Japan studies, U.S.-Japan relations, and/or Japanese foreign policy.

The application period for the 2023 fellowship has now closed. Learn more about the program here.
