Call for Application for the “4th Professor Josef Kreiner Hosei University Award for International Japanese Studies”
This award has been created to publicly celebrate Professor Josef Kreiner in his remarkable academic efforts to promote Japanese studies in Europe and at Hosei University Research Center for International Japanese Studies (HIJAS). At the same time we want to encourage overseas scholars of Japanese studies and to contribute to further development in this academic field.
The European Association of Japanese Resource Specialists (EAJRS) especially wishes to encourage the participation to its conference of resource specialists and young scholars from institutions with limited financial means or that have seldom or never attended an EAJRS conference. Therefore, with support from the Japan Foundation and Toshiba International Foundation, the organizers of the 29th EAJRS conference in Kaunas would like to offer grants, which will include:
- travel expenses to and from Lithuania up to a maximum of 500 euro
