Journalists from the United States and Japan can apply for a fellowship.
The Abe Fellowship for Journalists, sponsored by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP), is designed to encourage in-depth coverage of topics of pressing concern to the United States and Japan through individual short-term policy-related projects.
Applicants can submit proposals on one of four themes: threats to personal, societal and international security; growth and sustainable development; social, scientific and cultural trends and transformations; and governance, empowerment and participation.
The program provides support for six weeks in Japan or the United States. The maximum stipend is US$23,500, which includes one round-trip air ticket.
The application deadline is Sept. 15.
