The Japan Foundation (JF) is pleased to announce the "Japan-America Collegiate Exchange Travel Program" initiative. To facilitate exchange and understanding between Japan and the U.S., the Japan Foundation will provide travel funds to Japan primary for undergraduates and one faculty member.

The goal is to provide students with firsthand experience that will allow them to gain a more nuanced and balanced understanding of Japan.

The proposal deadline is rolling, and the funding period is between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012. The maximum amount of funding is $2,500 per student and project director, plus $3,500 for group expenses.
