The Tokyo Foundation is pleased to announce six new recipients of the Sylff Research Abroad (SRA) award in the first selection round for fiscal 2013 (click here). All successful applicants cleared a rigorous screening process with meticulously planned proposals to incorporate their research findings into their PhD dissertations. Of the six recipients, three will travel to the field to learn from primary sources how people have adapted to changing environments.
SRA provides a wonderful opportunity for current or past Sylff fellowship recipients to conduct academic research in a foreign country to enhance the quality of their doctoral dissertation. Sixty-two applicants have been awarded grants of up to US$5,000 since the program’s relaunch in 2011.
Short articles submitted by the recipients based on their SRA research can be read here. In addition, selected articles have been posted on the “Voices from the Sylff Community” page and will subsequently be published in a print booklet.
The deadline for the second selection round for fiscal 2013 is January 12, 2014. We look forward to receiving your applications!
