Ever thought about studying in Japan after JET? Alumni have the advantage of already having cultural experience there. The Japanese Governement offers the MEXT Scholarships for Research (non-degree) and Graduate studies (Master’s & PhD). But there are other scholarships to help get you to Japan!

JETAANY Member Alexis Agliano Sanborn is making a documentary about food education in Japan. It’s about the people who make food education and school lunches possible – from cooks and lawmakers to city staff and researchers. It’s a story about people who believe in food – and that teaching about food helps the next generation to grow and thrive. Make this project a reality by supporting her Kickstarter (launching in early January) and like Nourishing Japan on Facebook!
Information about the development of the documentary and the Kickstarter campaign can also be found here:
