designed to facilitate the research of individual scholars, to improve the quality of teaching about Japan on both the college and pre-college levels, and to integrate the study of Japan into the major academic disciplines in the United States.
Research Travel within the USA
- Awards of up to $2,000, including a maximum of $200 for daily expenses, are available to American citizens and permanent US residents who are engaged in scholarly research on Japan and wish to use museum, library, or other archival materials located in the USA.
- Grants of a maximum of $5,000 are available to American citizens and permanent US residents to cover travel expenses while conducting a specific project explicitly related to Japan which can be accomplished in the period of time requested. These grants are intended for short-term research trips by scholars who are already familiar with Japan and with their topic, but who need time in Japan in order to complete a distinct project. Justification for why research in Japan is required to do this research must be provided.
Small Scholarly Conferences on Japanese Studies
- NEAC will accept applications for supplemental funding from scholars organizing (not attending or participating in) workshops and small conferences in the field of Japanese studies to be held in the United States (however, an exception may be made if the host institution is a U.S. non-profit organization and the event is relevant to the U.S.-Japan bilateral relationship).
- These small scholarly conferences/seminars often serve to bring together scholars from diverse regions of the United States to share knowledge on issues at the cutting edge of the field. Funds will be limited to a maximum of $5,000, and may be used to help defray the costs of hosting and organizing such events. Typical uses might include: materials and administrative costs, participant travel and lodging (not to exceed $200 per day), and space rental
