Daiwa Foundation

For the Digital Humanities 2010 conference, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation has generously awarded funding for bursaries to enable young Japanese researchers to travel to the conference.  We are delighted to announce that five bursaries have been awarded for the conference. 


The awards may be used to cover travel from Japan to the UK.

In addition, award winners will be invited to attend the conference dinner free of charge as guests of the conference organisers, and a formal presentation of an award certificate will be made there.

Award winners are encouraged to attend the pre-conference workshops on Mon 5 and Tue 6 July.   

Award winners will be required to provide receipts for all travel costs (lowest economy class fare, plus cheapest travel to and from airports).

It is a condition of these awards that award winners submit a written report. This is to include: a brief CV; a short description of the conference/workshop topics and highlights; the personal/professional benefits they have gained and will gain in the near future from their participation in the event, especially in terms of new collaboration and new goals/achievements. Both the report and the complete set of receipts must be submitted in order to receive the reimbursement of expenditure.

About the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation

The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation is a UK charity, established in 1988 with a generous benefaction from Daiwa Securities Co Ltd. The Foundation’s purpose is to support closer links between Britain and Japan. 

It does this by:

  • making grants available to individuals, institutions and organisations to promote links between the UK and Japan in all fields of activity
  • enabling British and Japanese students and academics to further their education through exchanges and other bilateral initiatives
  • awarding of Daiwa Scholarships for British graduates to study and undertake work placements in Japan
  • organising a year-round programme of events to increase understanding of Japan in the UK

Daiwa Foundation Japan House, the London-based headquarters, acts as a centre for UK-Japan relations in Britain by offering a wide programme of seminars, exhibitions and book launches as well as meeting rooms for Japan-related activities and facilities for visiting academics. The Foundation is represented in Japan by its Tokyo Office, which provides local assistance to Daiwa Scholars and administers grant applications from Japan. It also handles general enquiries, and forms part of the network of organisations supporting links between the UK and Japan.
