Research stays can be of any duration up to the limit set by each researcher’s contract for days spent abroad while receiving JSPS support; and must start during the Japanese fiscal year 2017 (April 2017- March 2018).
What is funded
Selected researchers will continue to receive their funding and salary from JSPS during the length of their stay. JSPS does not support travel costs. However, researchers can also through an agreement with their host, receive financial support from the PIs grant money.
