The Tokyo Foundation is pleased to announce the 16 recipients of Sylff Research Abroad (SRA) awards in the second selection round for fiscal 2012 (click here). They represent the third group of winners since SRA was re-launched in 2011.
In total, 56 applicants have been awarded grants of up to $5,000 to enrich their PhD research since the renewal.
SRA provides a great opportunity for current or past Sylff fellowship recipients to conduct academic research related to their doctoral dissertation in a foreign country.
We are also announcing a call for applications for fiscal 2013 (April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014). The deadline for the first selection round is June 16 (for those planning research abroad after July 22).
Until last year, candidates were required to conduct their SRA research at a foreign institution of higher learning. This year, the types of research eligible for a grant have been widened; awards will also be considered for activities undertaken at research institutes, think tanks, non-governmental organizations, private firms, etc., as long as the proposed research is directly related to the doctoral dissertation.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
