Asia-Pacific Studies Fund (APSF, formerly American Studies Fund) was established in 1999 as an ad-hoc private group to promote collaborative research in Asia-Pacific studies between Japanese and non-Japanese scholars. APSF provides a reciprocal research fellowship.

Terms and Conditions

Those who are interested in collaborative and interdisciplinary research with Japanese scholars about some aspects of Asia-Pacific Studies, especially Japanese studies (humanities and social sciences) are welcome to apply for this fellowship. The Asia-Pacific region encompasses countries and areas in Asia and the Pacific Ocean, including North America (Canada and the United States).

Since this is a reciprocal research fellowship, APSF requests the institution to which the successful candidate belongs to prepare a matching fund to invite APSF faculty member as a visiting researcher in return for this fellowship.

The successful candidate will give at least one lecture at Osaka University.

APSF will provide the successful candidate with the fellowship sufficient to cover roundtrip airfare and accommodations on campus for 1-2 weeks.

APSF strongly urges the successful candidate to publish a joint research paper or an edited book with the APSF members.

The successful candidate will negotiate with APSF academic executive director concerning the specific details.

There is no deadline. APSF examines each application as soon as we receive it. It normally takes 2-8 weeks to make our decision after we receive all the necessary documents.

If you are interested in applying for this fellowship, please send the following via email:

1.        CV
2.        Three possible topics and synopses for your lecture
3.         Statement of your research project in Japan
4.       Statement that your institution provides a matching fund to invite APSF faculty member as a visiting researcher.
