Scholarship Program

Collaboration with the American Association of Teachers of Japanese:

The USJBF collaborates with the Bridging Project Clearinghouse at the American Association of Teachers of Japanese (Clearinghouse) to carry out its activities. Through the Clearinghouse, the USJBF actively recruits students to study in Japan.  We solicit applications twice a year to study for either a full year or one semester at universities throughout Japan.  We receive at least four applications for every one awarded, demonstrating both strong interest in studying in Japan and demand for financial assistance, given the extremely high cost of traveling to and living in Japan.  Today we award approximately 100 scholarships annually at a total value of $350,000.

Please go to the Clearinghouse website for more information and to download an application.
