The Edwin O. Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies will provide support to Harvard doctoral candidates who are in the dissertation research stage in any field of Japanese studies in the humanities or social sciences. Preference will be given to GSAS students in Japanese studies and those conducting their first year of field research in Japan.
Please Note: A limited number of grants may be available for students continuing their research in Japan. Grants will range up to $30,000. Students are not guaranteed this full amount. These Supplementary Research Grants are intended for longer term research, ie: a semester, 6 months or more, up to one academic year. A student may receive this grant only once (up to $30,000 total) during their time as a Harvard doctoral student. For those wishing to extend your research stay, please refer to the detailed instructions in the statement of purpose section below. This grant is intended to be supplemental to other sources of funding. Students applying to the Reischauer Institute for support are required to apply elsewhere as well.
