In addition to the above endeavors, the Japan Foundation Japanese Language Institution (Kansai) has also started a 5-year project that provides an opportunity for selected U.S. high school students to receive intensive Japanese language training and first-hand cultural experiences during the summer in Japan.  The first round brought 32 students to Japan from July 19 - 28, 2011; for more information on this round, please refer to this press release.  For more details on the program itself, please visit JET Memorial Invitation Program for U.S. High School Students.
