The Center for Japanese Studies provides a limited number of scholarships for undergraduate students who will participate in a study abroad academic program in Japan, as well as eligible language programs offered in the United States. Approximately five to seven scholarships are awarded on a merit-basis in an annual competition each spring.
Important Note: It is the responsibility of the student to find the appropriate study abroad program and to complete the necessary application process to enroll in the program. For assistance in finding the appropriate program, see the Study in Japan and Summer Language Programs sections of the CJS web site, see a study abroad advisor in your school/college (e.g., Center for Global and Intercultural Study, International Programs in Engineering, Ross Global Initiatives), or visit the International Center Education Abroad Office.
