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. Rather than seeking to promote greater understanding of a single country – Japan or the United States – the Abe Fellowship Program encourages research a comparative or global perspective. The program promotes deeply contextualized cross-cultural research.
The Abe Fellowship Program Committee seeks applications for research explicitly focused on policy-relevant and contemporary issues with a comparative or transnational perspective that draw the study of the United States and Japan into wider disciplinary or theoretical debates.
The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The Program administers an annual fellowship competition that provides scholars and non-academic research professionals in the social sciences and related disciplines with support for research projects addressing one or more of three themes: 1) traditional and non-traditional approaches to security and diplomacy, 2) global and regional economic issues, and 3) the role of civil society.
