Fulbright U.S Scholar Awards in Japan: Open to Early- Career Academics
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers over 400 awards for U.S. citizens to teach, research, and conduct professional projects in more than 130 countries. For the 2023-24 academic year, more than 270 awards are now open to early career academics in all disciplines, including awards in Japan. Early career academics include those with up to 7 years of experience (including postdoctoral applicants), so these awards can be a great start to your career as a scholar.
