The Matsumae International Foundation (MIF)<http://www.mars.dti.ne.jp/~mif/> is
a nongovernmental organization. Its Fund is solely based on donations from
many Japanese people who have responded with goodwill to Dr. Shigeyoshi
Matsumae’s call. While many donations have been kindly offered by
enterprises and groups, most of the donors are individuals who are
sympathetic with the Founder’s ideals, and maintain contributions to the
Fund from their limited incomes. Successful applicants are urged to
seriously consider and understand the goodwill of those persons, and ensure
that the provided fellowships are utilized effectively.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

Applicants of non-Japanese nationality who meet all of the following
eligibility requirements are invited to submit the required application
documents.

1. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. (Doctorate) degree, or be recognized by the
Matsumae International Foundation as possessing equivalent academic
qualifications.

2. Applicants must be below 40-years old level at the time of application.

Japanese to prevent insurmountable difficulties during their research
activities in Japan.

4. Applicants should not have been in Japan in the past and/or in the
present.

5. Applicants should have firm positions and professions in their home
countries, and should return to their countries on completion of their
fellowship stay by the Foundation.

6. Applicants who have previously been invited by the Foundation are not
eligible for this fellowship program.

7. Applicants must be of sound health and not physically handicapped in any
way which would not prevent from carrying out research in Japan.

FIELDS OF STUDY: Fields of study such as natural science, engineering and
medicine are given first priority.

PERIOD and NUMBER OF FELLOWSHIPS: At the time of application, please
indicate the length of your stay (between 3 to 6 months) from April 2011 to
March 2012. The Foundation prefers long stays (such as six months) to
shorter (such as three months). The number of fellowships given is about 20.

HOST INSTITUTION IN JAPAN: Applicants are free to select host institutions
(university research laboratories, national research institutions or the
corresponding facilities of private industry) in which to carry out their
research. However, applicants are cautioned that they are obliged to obtain
acceptance from such host institutions prior to submitting their
applications. The Foundation cannot give counsel or advice to an applicant
concerning his/her host institution in Japan.
