On June 20, 2012, Kojima Masayasu, Professor at Kurume University and author of the book Methods and Tips for Acquiring Grants-in-Aid Funding (Yodosha, 2010) held a seminar for APU faculty, entitled “Methods and Tips for Acquiring Grants-in-aid Funding: The Way You Write Makes a Big Difference!” Professor Kojima is the past recipient of 18 Grants-in-Aid awards, and his presentation was based on his own experiences and his thorough knowledge of the Grants-in-Aid system. He shared valuable insights with the 23 APU professors in attendance. In addition to covering the content on the more than 100 slides he prepared for the event, Professor Kojima showed actual examples of successful and unsuccessful Grants-in-Aid applications. He gave many tips on how to best write a Grants-in-Aid application—information that would typically not even be shared between colleagues. In order to establish this month as a time to prepare for the main season of research funding applications in the fall, this seminar was held following the June 13 seminar, entitled “Acquiring Research Funds from Private Foundations”. We will continue to provide assistance to those professors striving to obtain assistance from these two different sources of outside funding.

On June 13, 2012, Shiro Honda, Deputy Secretary General of The Japan Foundation Center held a seminar at APU advising faculty and graduate students on how to acquire research funding from private foundations. The Japan Foundation Center is an organization designed to support the development of foundations which provide grants, awards, scholarships, and other forms of aid to researchers. It also consolidates information about private foundations. Deputy Secretary Honda discussed the present state of these private foundations and the main points to consider when applying to them for research funding. The seminar was divided into lecture and workshop portions. 18 faculty members and 6 graduate students were in attendance. The question and answer session following the lecture was especially lively. Participants asked questions relating to the content of Mr. Honda’s presentation, and also about problems they face on a regular basis. During the workshop, Mr. Honda went over questions that participants had submitted beforehand, and all attendees were invited to exchange their opinions. The International Cooperation and Research Division (Office: Research Office) will continue to strive to support our researchers and their research activities here at APU.
