Fully Funded Canon Foundation Fellowship 2024


The Fully Funded Canon Foundation Fellowship bestows a maximum of 15 Fellowships to exceptionally qualified researchers from Europe and Japan every year. European awardees are expected to conduct research in Japan, while Japanese recipients are anticipated to carry out their research in Europe. 

Canon Foundation Fellowships span from a minimum of three months to a maximum of one year, encompassing all fields of research without any limitations. Applicants need not be currently affiliated or employed at the time of application.

European Canon Fellows have the liberty to select their host institutes and hosts in Japan, and the same autonomy is granted to Japanese Canon Fellows who choose to research in Europe. 

Research Fellowships can be sought once there's a mutual agreement on collaboration and a research plan between the visiting researcher and the potential host institution.
