U.S. – Japan Bridging Scholarships


The Association of Teachers of Japanese Bridging Project offers scholarships to American undergraduate students participating in study-abroad programs in Japan. Contributors to the scholarship fund include AIG, Citigroup, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Estee Lauder Group of Companies, The Freeman Foundation, Harmon International Industries, Hartford Financial Services Group, Goldman Sachs, Lockheed Martin, McDonalds Japan, Morgan Stanley, Nishimoto Trading Co., Shinsei Bank, and Weyerhaeuser.


  • 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 US citizens or permanent residents
  • Applicants must be enrolled as undergraduates in a college or university in the United States before and during the time they are studying abroad.
  • Applications for Bridging Scholarships are accepted twice a year: the next deadline, for students who will be studying in Japan beginning in Spring 2008, is October 5, 2007. Twenty scholarships will be awarded for Spring 2008.


Selection is based on academic potential and financial need.


Annually 100 scholarships are awarded to assist students with the travel and living expenses they will incur while studying abroad in Japan for a semester or an academic year. Bridging Scholarship recipients receive a stipend of $2,500 (for students on semester-long programs) or $4,000 (for students on academic year programs). Students studying in Japan on summer programs are not eligible to apply.


Late November -- results of the competition will be announced
