Responsibilities of BRIDGE Fellows and Host Researchers
Obtaining cooperation from their institution’s administrative office, host researchers are to provide facilities needed for visiting researchers to carry out their research activities during their stay in Japan. When needed, host researchers will also assist with immigration processing, securing domicile and other matters related to the fellow's stay in Japan.
Host researchers are not to subject the visiting researchers to misbehavior (e.g., discrimination (racial or gender), harassment (sexual or academic), abuse of power, neglect), or language or treatment that could be construed as such, during their tenures.
Visiting researchers are not to subject others to misbehavior (e.g., discrimination (racial or gender), harassment (sexual or academic), abuse of power, neglect) either in or outside the host institution during their tenures.
Fellows are to submit a post-visit report using "RESEARCH REPORT" (Form 7) to JSPS and the alumni association/JSPS office within one month after the end of their visits.
Fellows are asked to mention that they are invited under the BRIDGE Fellowship Program when giving lectures and other presentations in Japan.
Fellows are obligated during their tenures to concentrate on creating, sustaining and/or strengthening research and academic networks related to this fellowship program. During their tenures, Fellows are not to engage in other activities irrespective of whether they are paid or non-paid activities.
A researcher may not be a candidate for both this fellowship program and another JSPS program at the same time.
A researcher may not be awarded a BRIDGE Fellowship and a fellowship from another funding organization at the same time.
Incomplete or faulty applications will not be reviewed.
Applicants are to describe the results they obtained in other JSPS program(s) and their relevance to this BRIDGE fellowship program.
There is a limit of one application per person under each recruitment. This should be confirmed when a researcher applies who belongs to two or more alumni associations.
