Meiji Jingu Japanese Studies Research Grants for SOAS Staff - 2017/18

Grants are offered to assist full-time academic staff members of the JRC, SOAS, to promote Japanese Studies.

Funds may be used for personal research, conferences, etc, or to purchase research-level books for the SOAS Library. Group projects are acceptable, but should be submitted in the name of one representative individual.

Total subsidy of up to £2,200 will be offered in any one calendar year, for the duration of the agreement, to be divided between successful applicants. Awards will be assessed according to their importance for Japanese studies, as interpreted by the Steering Committee of the JRC. The Committee, together with the approval of Meiji Jingu, will decide who the successful applicant will be.

The closing date for applications will be Friday, 15 September 2017
