*Japan Society for the Promotion of Science BRIDGE Fellowship Program
*Application Guidelines*

*1. Purpose:* The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS)
provides opportunities for overseas researchers who have conducted research
activities under JSPS International Fellowships for Research in Japan or
other JSPS programs to re-visit Japan to create, sustain and/ or strengthen
research collaborations with Japanese colleagues. The objective is to build
strong networks among researchers in Japan and other countries through a
variety of activities. These include former JSPS fellows visiting their
past host institutions in Japan, or coming to Japan to plan or implement
joint research projects and seminars, to offer training or lectures for
young researchers, or to prepare or attend scientific conferences and
research meetings. Researchers invited to Japan under this fellowship
program are called “BRIDGE Fellows.” Based on applications by individual
researchers, candidates are recommended to JSPS’s Head Office by JSPS
alumni associations and JSPS overseas offices or the JSPS-designated
official in the Japanese Embassy for countries without a JSPS overseas
office. Hereinafter a JSPS overseas office or a JSPS-designated official in
a Japanese Embassy will be commonly referred to as a “JSPS office,” and the
alumni association and JSPS office as “alumni association/ JSPS office.”

*2. Applicable Fields: * All fields of the humanities, social sciences and
natural sciences are included under this program.

*3. BRIDGE Fellow Eligibility:* To be eligible, a researcher must meet both
of the following requirements. 2 / 8 (1) Be a researcher who has
experienced research in Japan under a JSPS program and who is currently a
regular member of an officially recognized JSPS alumni association (2)
Agreement by host researcher to all seven items of support in Form B
(Agreement by Host Researcher) * Upon receiving a recommendation from an
alumni association/ JSPS office, JSPS contacts the proposed host researcher
in Japan. If a proposed host says that he/she cannot provide the support
stipulated in Form B or cannot host the fellow, JSPS will not be able to
accept the recommendation. Therefore, candidates should communicate fully
with their proposed hosts before applying. * Researchers who have already
been supported under the BRIDGE Fellowship Program within the last 5 years
(FY2013-FY2017) are ineligible for this award. * Each alumni association/
JSPS office has its own screening criteria as “PROVISION b) Screening
Criteria”. Applicants should check before applying.

More details are provided in the attachments. Should you be interested to
