The Bridging Project offers scholarships to American undergraduate students participating in study-abroad programs in Japan. Funding from private foundations and major U.S. corporations, through donations to the nonprofit US-Japan Bridging Foundation, makes it possible to award about 100 scholarships each year to assist students with the travel and living expenses they will incur while studying abroad in Japan for a semester or an academic year. Applications are accepted twice a year for Bridging Scholarships.
Amount Awarded (semester): $2,500
Amount Awarded (academic year): $4,000
Submission Deadline for Fall 2018/Academic Year programs: April 11, 2018 (application available soon)
