Grant for NIHU International Prize in Japanese Studies
As the globalization of the world advances, we cooperate with the NIHU International Prize in Japanese Studies, based on the awareness of the importance of mutual understanding of (cultural) with other countries, which is different from our own countries.
The prize will be awarded to researchers based overseas who have shown outstanding achievement in Japan-related scholarship in literature, language, history, ethnology, folklore studies, the environment and other fields related to the human culture studies and have made great contributions to the international development of Japanese studies.
By evaluating and honoring the achievements of researchers studying Japan abroad, we are able to promote Japanese studies. It also supports the achievement of mutual cultural understanding through academic understanding.
