The Abe Fellowship Program encourages international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The program fosters the development of a new generation of researchers interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics. The program is carried out in cooperation with the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and the American Council of Learned Societies(ACLS).
This program offers training
opportunities for young Japanese security specialists
with a Ph.D. or an equivalent level of professional
experience. Over the course of two years, they
participate in monthly research seminars and receive
research guidance from the Program Directors.
The Japan Outreach Initiative
(JOI) aims to promote awareness and understanding
of Japan in regions of the United States with
relatively few Japan-related activities and opportunities
for exchange and to nurture new leaders in the
field of grassroots exchange. Japanese individuals,
placed mainly in the southern states, volunteer
for two years as outreach coordinators at organizations
such as Japan America societies and universities.
The NPO fellowship aims to
nurture leaders within the Japanese nonprofit
sector who will contribute to the building of
the sector’s foundation and serve as a bridge
between the United States and Japan.
