Bridging Scholarships for study abroad in Japan (Fall Deadline)

Date and Time

The Bridging Scholarship program is accepting applications from American students participating in study abroad programs in Japan that begin in Spring or Summer. Undergraduate students majoring in any field of study and attending any recognized credit-bearing exchange or independent program in Japan are eligible to apply for these scholarships.

Recipients of Bridging Scholarships will receive stipends of $2,500 to $4,500, depending on the length of their study program in Japan. The scholarships are funded by donations from corporations, individuals, and foundations to the US-Japan Bridging Foundation https://www.bridgingfoundation.org/. Since 1999, the Bridging Scholarship program has awarded more than 2,000 scholarships to students studying abroad in Japan. 

Spring/Summer study programs are those beginning between January and start of June and continuing for at least eight weeks, for a semester or for the academic year. Students studying in Japan beginning in the Fall of next year should apply beginning in February of this academic year.

Applications should be submitted electronically. The online application form and complete information (including a downloadable flyer) can be found at:
