The KCC Japan Education Exchange Graduate Fellowships Program was established in 1996 to support qualified PhD graduate students of any discipline for research or study in Japan. To date we have funded 18 graduate students as they pursued their doctoral degrees.  The purpose of the fellowship is to support future American educators who will teach more effectively about Japan. The majority of our Fellows have gone on to obtain faculty positions at educational institutions in the US, Japan, and the U.K.


Completed applications and all supporting materials must be submitted to:  programs@kccjee.org no later than 12:00 midnight CDT on March 9, 2020.  Award notification is expected by April 27, 2020; the recipient will have approximately 2 weeks to accept or decline the award. Applications that are not received by the deadline will not be considered. Only electronic applications will be accepted.

Fellowships are for one academic year, nonrenewable, nondeferrable, and are intended to cover both academic and living expenses. One fellowship of $30,000 will be awarded. To be eligible, you must be a United States citizen at the time of the award.
