Grants for Faculty

Through its Grants for Faculty initiative, JICUF seeks to encourage ICU faculty to create innovative projects that are international in scope and aligned with ICU’s commitment to the liberal arts.

ICU faculty and educational staff can submit proposals in either the Program Grant category or the Visiting Scholars Program category.

Faculty and staff may only submit one proposal at a time, and may not submit the same proposal under both categories.

*Please note that our Research Grant category is currently under review. Please check back here for future updates. 

We are accepting applications now!

Please read the below information on eligibility, guidelines etc., and apply by May 12th, 2017.

Program Grants

The Program Grant category encourages ICU faculty and educational staff to develop projects of interest and benefit to the ICU community.

Projects in this category include on-campus events and activities (i.e. academic workshops, symposia, conferences, etc.) and faculty-led exchange and service trips for ICU students.

Projects that promote cross-institutional partnerships are highly encouraged. Those that are interdisciplinary and involve critical inquiry will receive special emphasis.

 

The applicant must be a member of the ICU faculty or full-time education staff at the time of application and execution of the grant activity. Faculty can apply either individually or as a team. One member, however, must serve as the primary applicant and liaison between the group and JICUF.

Visiting Scholars Program

Since 2002, the Japan ICU Foundation has encouraged ICU faculty to sponsor influential professionals to visit ICU through the Visiting Scholars Program. During their brief stay at ICU, visiting scholars actively engage and share their knowledge with the ICU community through lectures, class discussions, workshops, and informal conversations.

The JICUF Visiting Scholars Program provides up to 2 weeks of housing support, a round-trip economy class airfare, and a per diem of ¥5,000. Visiting scholars can also receive ¥30,000 honorarium upon completion of a public event such as a lecture, presentation, or workshop, subject to approval by JICUF.

The applicant must be a member of the ICU faculty or full-time education staff at the time of application and execution of the grant activity. Faculty can apply either individually or as a team. One member, however, must serve as the primary applicant and liaison between the group and JICUF.
