Come celebrate with us as Ms. Sawako Kojima, of the Japan Information Center and Consulate-General of Japan in Chicago, presents the Japan Foundation Institutional Project Support Program in Japanese Studies to the University of Iowa. This is a very large three-year grant that supports innovative and sustained growth of Japanese studies in the U.S., but it is not an award that is easily obtained - just 3-4 universities in North America receive it per year.
The University of Iowa is proud to be one of them.
This celebratory event will take place from 5-6 p.m. on October 16 at 1117 University Capitol Centre.
Downing Thomas, associate provost and dean of International Programs, will receive the award on behalf of the university, and Morten Schlütter, director of UI Center for Asian and Pacific Studies, and Kendall Heitzman, assistant professor of Japanese Literature and Culture, will also make remarks. A small reception with refreshments will follow the ceremony.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Dongwang Liu in advance at 319-335-1305.
