Over years of the project implementation, hundreds of graduates have been produced and a number of them returned home country to teach at sending Member Institutions. They are becoming invaluable resources of the Institutions. To enable them to contribute to higher standard of the institution, their research and educational capacity need to be continuously enhanced. Short-Term Research Program in Japan is then launched in order to boost the capacity of these faculty-staff graduates. Participating alumni will be supported to do research at Japanese Supporting Universities. Primarily, the program aims to further provide significant support to the graduates. Nevertheless, their respective Member Institution will gain benefits in terms of network strengthening and capacity enhancement through this after-graduation academic collaboration between their staff and Japanese Supporting Universities. The applicants are required to get consent from Japanese professor(s). Only 18 applicants will be selected to join the program annually. Supporting items include travel expenses, accommodation and allowance for a period of 10 to 30 days.
AUN/SEED-Net master’s/ doctoral graduates* who are faculty staff members working at Member Institutions, not pursuing any degree at the time of application, and not residing in Japan.
