Visit and Study Japan Program (VSJapan) 2019

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 which may be of interest to your students. The name of the project is the AJS “Visit and Study Japan Grant Program (VSJ)”. It is designed to provide air fare and financial support to American graduate students who are studying Japan or Japan-U.S. relations. It is intended to help students to finish their theses by visiting Japan.
