Funding for the Abe Fellowship Program is provided by CGP.
The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern.
The program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics.
Research support to individuals is at the core of the Abe Fellowship Program.
Applications are welcome from scholars and non-academic research professionals.
The objectives of the program are to foster high quality research in the social sciences and related disciplines, to build new collaborative networks of researchers around the three thematic foci of the program, to bring new data and new data resources to the attention of those researchers, and to obtain from them a commitment to a comparative or transnational line of inquiry.
This competition is open to citizens of the United States and Japan as well as to nationals of other countries who can demonstrate strong and serious long-term affiliations with research communities in Japan or the United States.
