Association of Francophone Fellows of the JSPS: http://anciens-jsps.unistra.fr/
JSPS Strasbourg Office: https://jsps.unistra.fr/
The Association of Francophone Fellows of JSPS was created in 2004.
Its seat is in Strasbourg. Its objectives are: to promote Franco-Japanese cooperation in all fields of university research; to bring together recipients of JSPS scholarships in French-Japanese exchanges; to publicize JSPS scholarship opportunities in France as well as in French-speaking countries; to exchange information on the organization of study or research visits in Japan, on the reception of Japanese colleagues, etc.
In 2016 scholarships, called "Takenoko" for undergraduate students, were created by the Alumni association thanks to its own funding. They are devoted to support the extra costs for an internship or a study stay in Japan.
Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, activities of JSPS alumni associations were severely restricted in FY2020.
