The Ise-Japan Study Program 「伊勢」と日本スタディプログラム 2015

The “Ise-Japan Program” 「伊勢」と日本スタディプログラム is a fully funded stay in Ise with lectures and field trips designed for graduate students (MA and PhD) and post-graduate researchers. It is sponsored by Kōgakkan University 皇學館大学 and Ise City 伊勢市 and is held from late February to mid-March.

Online Postings

Participants in the program make posts online about Ise at least once each day explaining the contents of talks they have heard and trips they have taken. It’s a great opportunity for researchers to visit one of the most revered religious sites in Japan and study with experts from several disciplines. Travel costs for researchers coming from abroad or from inside the country are covered. The application details can be found here.
