Canon Foundation Research Fellowships 2016

The Canon Foundation in Europe is a philanthropic, grant-making institution, active in the promotion of international cultural and scientific relations between Europe and Japan. It was established in 1987 by Canon Europa N.V., Canon's European Headquarters. Its goal is achieved by providing Research Fellowships to postgraduate students and researchers.

Each year, to contribute to international understanding between Europe and Japan, the Canon Foundation in Europe offers up to 15 Research Fellowships to highly qualified European and Japanese researchers. Candidates need to have obtained at least their Master's degree within the past ten years. Exceptional candidates who received their qualification more than ten years prior to application will also be considered. These candidates are required to provide further supporting information in their application. Non-nationals are required to have permanent citizenship in either Europe or Japan.

The Canon Foundation welcomes applications from all fields of research. European Fellows pursue a period of research in Japan and Japanese Fellows at host institutions in Europe. Fellowships are awarded for periods of at least three months up to a maximum of one year.

The deadline for applications is 15 September 2016.
