THE ROBERT AND LISA SAINSBURY FELLOWSHIPS
Designed to strengthen academic ties with Japan studies programmes in
the United States and Canada, the Institute offers two fellowships on an
annual basis to scholars who have either received a PhD from a North
American university, or who are currently employed by a North American
academic institution or museum. Any area of Japanese culture is
eligible, though preference will be given to applications focusing on
the history of art, archaeology or architecture, or research with a
strong visual component.
The fellowships are intended to provide recipients with an opportunity to work in a scholarly environment conducive to completing a publication project. The maximum term of the fellowships is 12 months, beginning no earlier than 1 July 2008 and no later than 30 November 2008. The award for a full year will total 23,500 pounds sterling (approx. USD 40,000), not subject to UK income tax. Fellows will be covered by the National Health Service.
