Invitation Fellowship Programs for Research in Japan

 Program for Leading Graduate Schools works to advance the establishment of university graduate schools of the highest caliber by supporting the dramatic reform of their education programs in such a way that they will institute degree programs recognized as top quality around the world. To foster excellent students who are both highly creative and internationally attuned and who will play leading roles in the academic, industrial and governmental sectors across the globe, the program brings top ranking faculty and students together from both in and outside Japan and enlists participation from other sectors in its planning and execution, while creating continuity between master ’s and doctoral programs and implementing curricula that overarches fields of specialization.
Within JSPS, a program steering committee is established which carries out grant application screening and project evaluation.
