APPLY: 2021 Canon Foundation-Kyoto University Japan-Africa Exchange Program

The Canon Foundation in Europe (CFE) and Kyoto University (KU) started the Canon Foundation-Kyoto University Japan-Africa Exchange Program in 2018. The program offers fellowships to highly qualified researchers in fields of research related to African Studies. 

The program is intended to support 1) fellows from KU who carry out research at host institutions in Africa, and 2) those coming to KU from its partner institutions in Africa to conduct their research at Kyoto University.

The fellowships are for a minimum period of three months up to maximum of one year between April 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023. Due to the global pandemic of the COVID-19, fellows can postpone their travel at least for a half year after March 31, 2023, until the travel between Japan and Africa becomes possible.

Scholarship Details

The financial support for successful applicants ranges from 22,500 Euro to 27,500 Euro per year and is pro-rated for different periods. CFE will directly administer the payments and notify the detailed payment procedure to each successful applicant.
