Every year, the Canon Foundation provides 15 scholarships for a period of study in Japan, with the aim of helping to strengthen scientific and cultural relations between Europe and Japan.
The scholarships are designed for highly qualified European and Japanese researchers. You can apply for each research area for a period ranging from a minimum of 3 months to a maximum of 1 year.
Scholarships that initially covered research fields closely related to science and technology now include much more various and different fields of study. For example, grants were granted for studies relating to molecular biology, garden architecture, or studies on mechanics.
