Activities of JSPS Alumni Association in REPUBLIC OF PHILIPPINES
JSPS Alumni Association of Philippines (JAAP) was established as the 14th official JSPS Alumni Association. The DOST-JSPS Society of Philippines Ronpaku Fellows (PRF) was begun in July, 2005 under the Philippines Department of Science and Technology (DOST) support as the forerunner of the new alumni association. PRF had been holding active outreach fora and seminars with DOST support and cooperation. JSPS Bangkok Office suggested PRF move away toward JSPS official Alumni Association to further promote their activities. With the suggestions of JSPS Bangkok Office, PRF recruited other JSPS alumni members and established JAAP finally in April, 2013. After appointment of president, registration to the government, and application to JSPS headquarters, JAAP was approved as an official JSPS Alumni Association in September, 2013.
