Scholarships for Study in Japan

Scholarships for Study Abroad in Japan

The Bridging Scholarship program will award 50 scholarships to American students participating in study-abroad programs in Japan
that begin in Fall 2007. Undergraduate students majoring in any field of study and attending any recognized exchange or independent program in Japan are eligible to apply for these scholarships.
Recipients of Bridging Scholarships will receive stipends ranging from $2,500 to $4,000, depending on the length of their study program in Japan. The scholarships are funded by donations from U.S. corporations and foundations to the US-Japan Bridging Foundation.
Since 1999, the Bridging Scholarship program has awarded more than 700 scholarships to students studying abroad in Japan. Most recently, 13 students received scholarships for the Spring 2007 semester.
The deadline for applications is April 5, 2007. Applicants will be notified of the results by May 30. Selection will be based on
academic potential and financial need. The scholarships are
administered by the Association of Teachers of Japanese.
In addition, Morgan Stanley will award two $7,500 scholarships to undergraduate students who will be studying abroad in Japan during the 2007-2008 academic year and who have an interest in economics and international finance. Applicants must submit an essay on one of several designated public-policy topics together with an application for the Bridging Scholarship program.
Fall 2007 programs are those beginning between August and October 2007 and continuing for at least three months. (Summer program participants are not eligible for Bridging Scholarships.) Students planning to study abroad in Japan beginning after January 1, 2008, should apply in October 2007 for the Spring 2008 scholarships.
Information on the Bridging and Morgan Stanley scholarships and downloadable application forms are available at ATJ's Web site: Printed application brochures are also available.
