Award Details
Grant Activity

Teach two undergraduate or graduate courses, or a combination of both, per semester in field of specialization. Since a normal load for Fulbright teaching grantees in Japan is four courses, this reduced teaching load allows grantees to conduct research on a topic of their choice. Courses meet usually once a week for 90-105 minutes. The research project should be consistent with the grantee's area of expertise and the project should be feasible, especially with regard to language, time and venue constraints. The proposal must also make clear why residence in Japan is essential to undertake the research.

Special Features

Fulbright East Asia Pacific Regional Travel Program

Fulbright Scholars in the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region have the opportunity to apply for funds to support short-term (3-14 days) travel to other countries in the EAP region for activities such as lectures, workshops, graduate or faculty seminars, master classes or recitals, curricular advising or panel presentations. EAP Regional Travel Program funding covers transportation only. Regional Travel Program activities/host sites should not be included in the initial Fulbright application. Scholars may pursue invitations for short-term activities in other EAP countries once notified that they have been selected for a Fulbright grant, and may only apply for travel program funds once they have actively started their Fulbright grant in their host country. Scholars on Flex grants are not eligible for the regional travel grant.
