The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to offer an enhanced calendar function that allows users to view all ORSP-related deadlines, meetings, and events, as well as sort by core ORSP service area: Compliance, E-Grants, I-Grants, and Innovation.  To sort by category, select the appropriate category from the drop-down menu.  Deadlines, meetings, and events are also color-coded: yellow for Compliance; green for E-Grants; blue for I-Grants; and purple for Innovation.  Items marked with an "!" indicate grant program deadlines.

Additionally, users may alter views between a week and a month.  In order to change views, click on the calendar icons on the right of the screen under the “Calendar of Events” header.

Finally, users may add a deadline, meeting, or event into their own Outlook calendar from the ORSP calendar.  In order to add an item to a user’s own calendar, click on a deadline, meeting, or event.  Once inside the deadline, meeting, or event details, scroll to the bottom of the description.  Click on the ‘iCal” icon; this will generate an Outlook calendar item based on the information contained in the ORSP calendar.  Users will have the option to edit the appointment within their calendar to accommodate personal calendar preferences.

The Fellowship Program for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan is a joint activity of the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission (JUSFC) and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Awards support research on modern Japanese society and political economy, Japan’s international relations, and U.S.-Japan relations. The program encourages innovative research that puts these subjects in wider regional and global contexts and is comparative and contemporary in nature. Research should contribute to scholarly knowledge or to the general public’s understanding of issues of concern to Japan and the United States. Appropriate disciplines for the research include anthropology, economics, geography, history, international relations, linguistics, political science, psychology, public administration, and sociology. Awards usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources.

The fellowships are designed for researchers with advanced language skills whose research will require use of data, sources, and documents in their original languages or whose research requires interviews onsite in direct one-on-one contact. Fellows may undertake their projects in Japan, the United States, or both, and may include work in other countries for comparative purposes. Projects may be at any state of development.
