Launched in 1961 and implemented by NSF and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), this program supports travel and subsistence costs required for cooperative research. Japanese counterpart scientists and engineers are typically associated with universities and colleges. American researchers from any sector may apply. Cooperative research projects may be supported for 1 to 3 years. Visits made in conjunction with such projects are short-term, usually several weeks to three months each year. Support is also offered for travel and living expenses for graduate students and postdoctoral investigators who can contribute significantly to a project.
Proposal Deadline: NSF: June 15 of each year JSPS: May 23 of each year
The Japanese counterpart principal investigator must submit a proposal to JSPS. Joint approval of such projects by NSF and JSPS is required, and the U.S. investigator's proposal to NSF must include a copy of the cover page of the proposal submitted to JSPS.
