Applicants are invited to apply for Asia-Euro Policy Dialogue Research Fellowship Program. These fellowships are open to the researchers from Asia, Europe and Japan.
The aim of the fellowship is to provide deeper and wider networking opportunities to the fellows.
The National Graduate Institute for Policy, or GRIPS, is a graduate school located in Minato, Tokyo, funded by the Japanese Government.
Course Level: These fellowships are available to pursue the research programme.
Study Subject: These fellowships are awarded in the fields offered by the university.
Scholarship Award: The grant for the duration of the Fellowship Period will be provided to the fellow by the respective core institution as follows, subject to the condition that the grant shall be provided to the fellow in accordance with the rules and regulations of the fellow’s home core institution.
Circle-trip airfare, economy-class for the shortest direct route (or an indirect route if a direct route is unavailable) from the airport nearest to the fellow’s residence to the same origination airport with two stopovers in the Fellowship activity areas, will be provided.
- The fellow must agree to the condition that the flight routes and grades be chosen in an economical and reasonable manner.
- Notwithstanding the aforementioned, three core institutions may not disburse or reimburse to the fellow the entire requested amount if the fellow’s home care institution judges that the airline ticket the fellow purchased is not appropriate based on this general rule.
The basic rule is that a stipend of JPY 390,000 per month for a stay in Tokyo, JPY 600,000 per month for a stay in Jakarta, or JPY 810,000 per month for a stay in Paris will be provided in a lump sum for accommodation, meal, computation, oversea travelers’ insurance(*) and other sundry expenses and that the stipend shall be adjusted on a prorated basis in case the fellows staying in one region, i.e., ASEAN, Europe or Japan, should be shorter than thirty (30) days. However, each core institution may not be prevented from disbursing to their fellow such other payment amount as derived from the prorated calculation based on the fellow’s specific research schedule.
- The fellow is required to subscribe to overseas travellers’ insurance from the time of leaving her/his home until the time of return to her/his residing country.
- If for any reason, the fellow returns to her/his country of residence sooner than planned after receiving the stipend, the fellow must refund the remaining portion of the paid stipend to the relevant core institution.
- The fellow’s staying in one activity area for exceeding 30 days will not be approved under any circumstances.
- Small fund
JPY 150,000 will be also provided to the fellow for the expenses for intercity transportation more than 100 kilometres so that the fellow’s research objective is to be satisfactorily accomplished within one activity area. For example, in the case where the fellow from ASEAN or Japan visits London during her/his stay in Paris, the round-trip train fare will be covered by this fund. However, this fund does not cover those items to be compensated by the stipend, e.g., those expenses such as transportation in London, meals etc.
