Japan and World Graduate Scholarships

The Japanese Studies subject group is delighted to announce the provision of a set of Japan and the World graduate scholarships. The awards are intended for promising, qualified students applying for any of our graduate programmes---the PhD and MPhil (both the Advanced Studies MPhil and the Research MPhil) and are open to UK, European and international students. Funding is intended to cover fees and potentially also maintenance and living costs, and will be awarded based on merit. 

As Professor Mickey Adolphson noted in his inaugural professorial lecture on October 21, 2016, "I am delighted to be able to share with you that beginning next year, we will be offering several scholarships for deserving graduate students. We have named them “Japan and the World” scholarships and they are of course meant to not just give young and talented scholars an opportunity to further their education under the guidance of some of the best mentors in Japanese Studies, but also to enrich our own intellectual environment." 

Awards will be made for students applying for the programme commencing October 2018. Interested applicants should indicate their wish to be considered for the award in their application and must ensure that their application has been submitted in time for the January 4, 2018 deadline.
