Canon Foundation Research Fellowships

The Canon Foundation in Europe grants up to 15 research fellowships annually to highly qualified European and Japanese researchers. Candidates should hold a doctorate or at least a Master's degree. They are eligible during the ten-year period following the successful completion of their Ph.D or MA degree. Extensions to the ten-year rule are possible in principle in case of exceptional circumstances. Non-nationals have to have a permanent citizenship in either Europe or Japan.

The aim of the Foundation is to contribute to international understanding, in particular between Europe and Japan. Thus the European fellowship holders pursue a period of research in Japan whereas the Japanese fellows do their research at host institutions in Europe. The fellowships are awarded for periods of a minimum of three months and a maximum of one year. Applications for research fellowships in all fields of research are welcome.

The deadline for the year 2008 is 15 September 2007.
