The Edwin O. Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies will offer several Summer Research Grants to Harvard graduate students in the humanities or social sciences whose work focuses on Japan for the Summer 2020. Preference is given to doctoral students in Japanese Studies, in the humanities/social sciences. In addition to doctoral students in Harvard candidates, continuing Masters programs will be considered, as will graduating Harvard Masters students who will enter a Harvard Ph.D. program in the following year. Please note: Preference will be given to GSAS students in Japanese studies. Applicants must usually have completed at least three years of Japanese language study, or have comparable proficiency in the language. Grants are normally for summer research travel from Harvard to Japan, and return.
