April 28, 2016
Serena Yang (Ph.D. student in musicology) was awarded the Nippon Foundation Fellowship for the 2016-17 academic year. The fellowship will allow Serena to pursue language study at the prestigious Inter-University Center for Japanese language studies in Yokohama and join a cohort of Nippon research fellows. The fellowship is designed to: 1) attract the best and brightest young scholars seeking Japan-focused careers; 2) equip them with the linguistic and cultural knowledge needed to become leaders in their fields; 3) foster strong collegial bonds and intellectual exchange with their IUC colleagues/alumni in a manner that strengthens the network of non-Japanese experts on Japan.
