                    Hakuho Foundation Invites Applications for
                   The 2nd Japanese Language Fellowship Program

                               Program Details

The Hakuho Foundation was established in 1970 under the approval of the 
Ministry of Education (the current Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, 
Science and Technology) to promote child education. Since then, the Foundation 
has supported the fostering of healthy minds in children by presenting the 
Hakuho Award to organizations and individuals that have made outstanding 
contributions to the  education of elementary and middle-school children, 
particularly in the areas of language and culture.

Last year, to mark the Foundation’s 35th anniversary, we began providing 
support for free, creative research projects conducted by young researchers in 
the area of “language, culture and education,” which we consider the very 
foundation of desirable learning.

The Hakuho Foundation, in cooperation with the National Institute for Japanese 
Language, launched another new project this year, the Japanese Language 
Research Fellowship Program. The first group of researchers, who will be 
invited to Japan in October this year, has already been selected.

This new program recognizes outstanding performance by leading non-resident, 
non-Japanese scholars, researchers and instructors of the Japanese language by 
inviting them to Japan to engage in research and studies at the National 
Institute for Japanese Language. Through this, we seek to contribute to 
advancing Japan’s own research and Japanese-language instruction, while also 
helping to improve education fundamentals as a whole.

The Hakuho Foundation is pleased to announce the details of the 2nd Japanese 
Language Research Fellowship Program. (Program details and application forms 
are available at the Japanese Studies Program, 3rd Floor Social Sciences 
Building, Ateneo de Manila University.)
