Japan Travel Grants

The GLCA Fund for the Study of Japan supports travel to Japan, within Japan, or to other East Asian countries as part of projects related to Japan. Prior experience in Japanese Studies is not necessary, however the rationale for travel must be carefully documented. The Fund is designed to enhance and extend the study of Japan. In keeping with that requirement, the following conditions are used as a guideline for successful proposals:

  • Allow for at least ten days in Japan
  • Include activities that can only be carried out in Japan (meetings, museum and library visits; shrines, temples, & natural science field sites)
  • Are new initiatives
  • Are integrated into other campus activities
  • Result in new courses on Japan or enhanced Japan content in existing courses
  • Secure matching funds from the home campus
  • Are from faculty members who have not recently received a grant from the Fund

Grants in this category provide up to $2,500 for travel, lodging, and meals. Proposals should indicate benefits to the home campus and/or consortial campuses (course enhancements, lectures, performances, exhibits, etc.).
