Designed to strengthen academic ties with Japan studies programmes in the United States and Canada, the Institute offers two fellowships on an annual basis to scholars who have either received a PhD from a North American university, or who are currently employed by a North American academic institution or museum. Any area of Japanese culture is eligible, though preference will be given to applications focusing on the history of art, archaeology or architecture, or research with a strong visual component. The fellowships are intended to provide recipients with an opportunity to work in a scholarly environment conducive to completing a publication project. The maximum term of the fellowships is 12 months. The award for a full year will total 23,500 pounds sterling (approx. USD 40,000), not subject to UK income tax. Fellows will be covered by the National Health Service.
