Research Fellowships for Young Scientists

In view of the growing need to foster early career researchers who will play an important role in future scientific research activities, JSPS provides a special programme under which fellowships are granted to 1) Japanese postdoctoral researchers at their early stages of career who conduct research activities at Japanese universities or research institutions on a non-employment basis and to 2) graduate students who conduct research as part of Japanese university doctoral programmes. JSPS strongly recommends the successful researchers to conduct their research abroad because it would be extremely helpful to train researchers with overseas experience for the advancement of world class research taking place in Japan.
