“Towards A Greater Understanding of Japan and a Lasting World Peace,” MIF has started the Research Fellowship Program in 1980.
The Matsumae International Foundation (MIF) is a nongovernmental organization. Its Fund is solely based on donations from many Japanese people who have responded with goodwill to Dr. Shigeyoshi Matsumae’s call. While many donations have been kindly offered by enterprises and groups, most of the donors are individuals who are sympathetic with the Founder’s ideals, and maintain contributions to the Fund from their limited incomes.
Successful applicants are urged to seriously consider and understand the goodwill of those persons, and ensure that the provided fellowships are utilized effectively.
Applicants of non-Japanese nationality who meet all of the following eligibility requirements are invited to submit the required application documents.
Fields of study such as natural science, engineering and medicine are given first priority.
Applicants should obtain the current issue of the Fellowship Announcement from MIF, or, download the announcement from the webpage of MIF. Then, print out the Application Form in PDF-format or MS Word file.
Application must be submitted from the applicant’s home country. Under no circumstances will an application be accepted from a person already in Japan.
MIF never receives applications by Fax or E-Mail. Applications must be received by MIF by August 31, 2017, at the latest.
