Now Accepting Applications: Abe Fellowship (Thru Sept 1st)


The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) announce the annual Abe Fellowship competition.

The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The Abe Fellowship 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.

Please note our new research agenda for 2015. Applicants are invited to submit proposals for research in the social sciences and related fields relevant to any of the following four themes:
•    Threats to Personal, Societal, and International Security
•    Social, Scientific, and Cultural Trends and Transformations
•    Growth and Sustainable Development
•    Governance, Empowerment, and Participation

Research projects should be policy relevant, contemporary, and comparative or transnational.

For further information on the program, please see our program page; to apply for the Abe Fellowship, please go to the SSRC program page.  Applications are due September 1st, 2015.
