One of the central aims of the Japan and the World Campaign has been to establish links between Japanese Studies at the University of Cambridge and Japanese businesses with an interest in advancing the field of Japanese Studies, both in the UK and internationally. Below we list our sponsors, whose support is ensuring Cambridge remains a world-leading centre for Japanese Studies.
Nakagawa General Association
The Hiroyuki Nakagawa Graduate Scholarship in Japanese Studies
The The Hiroyuki Nakagawa Graduate Scholarship in Japanese Studies will provide a new source of funding for top-flight PhD applicants.
Administered in collaboration with the Cambridge Trust and the Japanese Studies Section of the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, the scholarship will cover tuition fees and maintenance for two graduate students, one starting in 2019 and one in 2022.

Cambridge Kaho Postdoctoral Scholar Fellowship in Japanese Studies
The Cambridge Kaho Postdoctoral Scholar Fellowship in Japanese Studies, generously provided by Ms Seijyu Kaho, Chief Director of Pan Asian Alliance, will provide funding for two consecutive postdoctoral research positions over six years from 2020.
This will be a great asset to Japanese Studies at Cambridge, raising our already excellent research profile, and potentially introducing a new field of expertise into the faculty.
Toshiba International Foundation
Cambridge Toshiba Japan and the World Graduate Scholarship
The Cambridge Toshiba Japan and the World Graduate Scholarship was established in 2018 and is funded jointly by the Toshiba International Foundation and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust.
The scholarship is intended to support research that either engages one or several disciplines in the study of Japan or considers Japan in the larger context of the world.
The Japanese Studies Group at the University of Cambridge would like to express their thanks to the Toshiba International foundation for their generous support.
