Friends of UTokyo, Inc. (FUTI) is committed to furthering the educational and research goals of FUTI by awarding grants and scholarship awards to non-profit organizations (typically universities and research institutions) in the U.S., students and scholars in the U.S. and Japan, whose activities will help further globalization of UTokyo (the University of Tokyo), its faculty members and students. In order to see the reports by FUTI’s recent awardees, please see the Roster of Recipients page.

At present, we are soliciting proposals and applications on:

  1. Grant (up to $10,000) to a project/activity to be jointly pursued by UTokyo and Institution(s) in the U.S. The project/activity may be, for example, a conference or workshop, a travel grant for a graduate student or researcher who participates in a joint project with UTokyo, etc. Because of FUTI’s limited budget, use of the grant for a faculty salary is not allowed.

  2. Award to support a U.S. student who attends a summer internship/program offered by UTokyo or its affiliated institution. For more information, click here.
