joint activity of the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission (JUSFC) and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Awards support research on modern
Japanese society and political economy, Japan's international relations, and U.S.-Japan relations. The program encourages innovative research that

include anthropology, economics, geography, history, international relations, linguistics, political science, psychology, public
administration, and sociology. Awards usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports,
translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. ELIGIBILITY: The Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan program
accepts applications from researchers, teachers, and writers, whether they have an institutional affiliation or not. FUNDING: Fellowships support
continuous full-time work for a period of six to twelve months. Successful applicants receive a stipend of $4,200 per month. The maximum stipend
is $50,400 for a twelve-month period.
