Visit and Study Japan Grant Program (VSJ) 2020

The America-Japan Society (AJS) is a long-standing private organization based in Tokyo. Our mission is to promote good relations between the U.S. and Japan.


In April 2017, AJS celebrated our centennial anniversary. In order to commemorate this milestone, the Society has started a grant program, “Visit and Study Japan Grant Program (VSJ)”. It is designed to provide air fare and financial support to the U.S. graduate students who study Japan or Japan-U.S. relations. This program will help foster their intellectual curiosity and deepen understanding of Japan through hands-on study and experience.
