Japanese Studies Offers New Scholarship in Partnership with the Toshiba Foundation

last modified Jan 15, 2018 03:19 PM

On Monday, 4th September 2017, Mr Keisuke OMORI, president of Toshiba International Foundation, visited Cambridge to sign an agreement with the Cambridge Trust and the Japanese Studies section of the University of Cambridge to establish the Toshiba Cambridge Japan and the World Graduate Scholarship.

Offering full funding (fees and maintenance) for three years, one scholarship will be awarded to an incoming PhD student in 2018 and another in 2020. The scholarship is open to any applicant who has been offered admission to the PhD programme in Asian & Middle Eastern Studies (Japanese Studies) at the University of Cambridge.

Applications will be judged on the merit of their research plans, and preference will be given to those whose research aims to place Japan within the larger context of the world, either in its multilateral focus or through its disciplinary impact.

Further details of how to apply can be found on our Graduate Studies Funding page, along with information on other funding opportunities in Japanese Studies. Please contact for the latest information.
