The University of Cambridge in the UK is inviting prospective graduate students to apply for the Cambridge Toshiba Japan and the World Graduate Scholarship for 2020/2021 academic session.
The purpose of the Scholarship is to stimulate research that either engages one or several disciplines in the study of Japan or considers Japan in the larger context of the world, broadly defined. The Scholarship provides coverage for fees and maintenance for three years, but students can choose to defer part of the scholarship during the third year when doing research abroad.
The Toshiba International Foundation aims to contribute to enhanced international understanding of Japan by promoting cultural exchange. It offers support for symposia and seminars, for cultural Programmes, and for research and students. In 2018 the Foundation, in conjunction with the Cambridge Trust, is offering the Cambridge Toshiba Japan and the World Graduate Scholarship, for a PhD applicant to the Faculty of Asian & Middle Eastern Studies whose research aims to place Japan within the wider context of the world, either in its multilateral focus or through its disciplinary impact.
