U.S. - Japan Bridging Foundation Scholarship

The U.S. – Japan Bridging Foundation offers scholarships each year through the American Association of Teachers of Japanese (AATJ). Undergraduate students majoring in any field of study are eligible to apply for these scholarships. Japanese language study is not a prerequisite. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and must be enrolled as undergraduates in a college or university in the United States before and during the time they are studying abroad. Their study in Japan must earn credit that will transfer to their home campus in the US.
