Report Memorandum 97-02 January 10, 1997

FY96

(October 1995 - September 1996)
Annual Report
Activities Supported by

National Science Foundation's Division of International Programs

for collaboration between the U.S. and Japan

This report provides information about NSF-funded researchers who arrived in Japan during FY96 (October 1995 - September 1996) under bilateral programs sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation's Division of International Programs. This list of U.S. researchers is not all inclusive as it does not include those projects and seminars that were not subject to bilateral approval. If you desire further information on specific U.S. researchers or their Japanese host or counterpart, please send an e-mail message to either:

NSF/INT/Japan Programs (e-mail: intjkp@nsf.gov) or

NSF/Tokyo Office (nsftokyo@beehive.twics.com).
Brief descriptions of U.S.-Japan programs sponsored by NSF/INT are provided in this report. For further information on each program, please visit the NSF Tokyo Office Home Page at: http://www.twics.com/~nsftokyo/home.html
Science and Technology Agency (STA) Post-doctoral Fellowship Program
Program outline: Established in 1988, this program provides 6-24 month fellowships at national laboratories, Japanese public corporations, and certain non-profit research organizations to foreign researchers who have obtained a doctoral degree within the past six years. In special cases, applications are submitted directly by the Japanese researcher wishing to host a foreign researcher (often for shorter stays). In most cases, American researchers apply through NSF with a proposal outlining host arrangements and a cooperative research project.
The number of NSF-nomianted STA fellows who arrived in Japan during FY96: 12
