Keizai Koho Fellowship Tour

Since 1980, the Keizai Koho Center (Japan Institute for Social and Economic Affairs) in cooperation with the National Association of Japan-America Societies (NAJAS) has sponsored a Fellowship tour to Japan for educators in the U.S. and Canada. The Fellowship allows teachers to learn first hand about contemporary Japanese society and enhance their classroom teaching of global perspectives. Highlights of the fellowship include visits to Japanese schools, major companies, and industrial facilities. In addition, sightseeing excursions are planned to allow the fellows to learn about Japanese culture and society. 

The 2015 application is now open! The deadline to apply is February 15, 2015.

2013 Pittsburgh-area fellow Ashlee Beckett was featured as a newsmaker in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
