The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Research Programs is accepting applications for the Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan program. This program aims to promote Japan studies in the United States, to encourage U.S.- Japanese scholarly exchange, and to support the next generation of Japan scholars in the U.S. These fellowships are for individual researchers with advanced Japanese language skills whose research will require using data, sources, documents, onsite interviews, or other direct contact in Japanese. Fellows may undertake their projects in Japan, the United States, or both, and may include work in other countries for comparative purposes. Research should contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public's understanding of issues of concern to Japan and the United States. Appropriate disciplines include anthropology, economics, geography, history, international relations, linguistics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Awards usually result in articles, monographs, books, e-books, digital materials, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. This fellowship is for a period of six to twelve months and comes with a stipend of $5,000 per month, for a maximum of $60,000. Successful applicants will be awarded outright funds.
