Canon Foundation's Europe-Japan Fellowships

The Canon Foundation in Europe grants up to 15 Research Fellowships annually to highly qualified European and Japanese researchers, aiming to contribute to international understanding, in particular between Europe and Japan. 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 three months and maximum of one year. Applications for Research Fellowships in all fields of research are welcome.

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 which should be explained in the application and supporting documents are required. Non-nationals have to have a permanent citizenship in either Europe or Japan.

The deadline for the year 2009 applications is 15 September 2008.
