Call for Applicants for Traveling Fellowship Program for Foreign Professionals engaged in Prosthetics and Orthotics in F/Y 2019
We support up to two fellows in one year. The deadline of the fiscal year 2019 (September 1, 2019 〜 August 31, 2020) is March 31, 2019.
In order to achieve the objectives of the Japanese Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics (JSPO) from the standpoint of international exchange, JSPO has established the Exchange Traveling Fellowship, which is one of the goals of the JSPO Committee on International Affairs as specified in the Association’s bylaws. By this program, qualified foreign professionals will be subsidized for a part of their transportation costs to visit institutions related to prosthetics and orthotics in Japan and/or to make presentations at domestic or international meetings organized by JSPO.
The amount of the subsidy is from ¥50,000 to ¥300,000 per person, depending on the expected transportation cost, which is determined by the JSPO Committee on International Affairs. When the total transportation cost, including airfare and accommodation fee (We expect to stay within 7 days.), exceeds this amount, participants must pay the excess themselves. The total amount of the fiscal subsidy will not exceed the budget approved by JSPO Board of Governors.
A candidate for this Fellowship shall satisfy the following requirements:
Applicants for a Fellowship shall submit the following materials（WORD） to the Committee on International Affairs of JSPO
The Japanese Society of Proshetics and Orthotics
#201 5-32-7 Hongo Bunkyo-ku
Tokyo 113-0033 Japan, by the specified deadline:
The JSPO Committee on International Affairs shall review the qualifications of the applicants and report the results to the Chairperson of the JSPO Board of Governors. The Chairperson shall, following deliberations between the Board of Governors and the Committee, select the qualified fellows.
A Fellowship recipient shall submit the assigned reports to the JARM Committee on International Affairs. The Committee will consider the reports for publication in Bulletin of the Japanese Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics and other JSPO publications.
