Federal employees with a strong career interest in
Japan-U.S. relations are encouraged to apply for a Mike
Mansfield Fellowship, named after the late U.S. ambassador
During the two-year program, participants spend a year
working full-time in Japanese government offices, after
completing a year of intensive study in Washington D.C.
After completing the program, they return to their federal
agencies with proficiency in Japanese and practical,
firsthand experience with Japan and its government that
enables them to contribute to their agencies’ Japan-related
work. They then are required to serve their agency in that
capacity for at least two years.
Application deadline is April 1, 2004. For more information
about the fellowships visit them online. Information
sessions will be held at the Mansfield Foundation offices
in Washington, D.C. on November 5, December 3, January 7,
2003, February 4 and March 3, 2004. To reserve a space,
