  Fellowship Overview  

The Keizai Koho Center (Japan Institute for Social and Economic Affairs) in cooperation with the National Association of Japan-America Societies sponsored a two-week fellowship to Japan this summer for 15 educators in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Australia to learn first hand about contemporary Japanese society and enhance their classroom teaching of global perspectives.

Fellowship Agenda
Fellowship Dates: June 28 - July 13, 2004
The two week itinerary in Japan includes time in Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Nagoya; meetings with government officials, educators, and business people; visits to elementary and secondary schools; discussions with educational authorities, teachers, and students; tours of major industrial and corporate facilities; meetings with key business leaders; and a home stay with a Japanese family.
The fellowship covers air transportation from the fellow's home city to Japan and return, as well as, accommodations, transportation as called for by the itinerary, and some meals. Fellows have the opportunity to enjoy Japan's scenic beauty and cultural treasures while pursuing an understanding of the successes and concerns of contemporary Japanese society. Roundtable discussions between Japanese teachers and the participants, as well as, business leaders regarding educational issues will be a key feature of the fellowship. Educators will complete a project of curriculum materials or educational activities related to the theme of the fellowship to share with other educators. A sourcebook will be published on the Internet with contributions from each fellow.
This fellowship is only open to those who have never lived in Japan and have not visited Japan on a similar study tour. The demands of the itinerary are such that only individuals physically able to travel without special assistance should consider this fellowship. Special diets cannot be provided and a smoke-free environment cannot be assured. Due to the nature of the program and logistical requirements, there will be no provisions for spouses to accompany fellows. Applicants must have skills and experience in developing curriculum. The fellowship is open to:
  • K-12 classroom teachers of social studies, history, and business;
  • K-12 teachers of disciplines with a Japan component in their curriculum (limited availability);
  • Supervisors, specialists, and school administrators at the district and state levels; and
  • Faculty associated with 4 year colleges who are directly concerned with the training of K-12 grade level
Application materials for the U.S. and Canadian educators must be submitted to the NAJAS in Washington, DC. Applications must be postmarked no later than February 29, 2004. Faxed applications are not accepted. Fellows will be notified in writing by April 15, 2004 of their selection. For further information about eligibility or to request an application, please contact:
