About this Fellowship

This program offers scholarships to American undergraduate students participating in study-abroad programs in Japan for a semester or an academic year.

Undergraduate students majoring in any field of study are eligible to apply for Bridging Scholarships. Japanese language study is not a prerequisite. In addition to scholarships, students are provided with mentorship and networking opportunities.

There are two application cycles, one with a fall deadline for spring semester programs, and spring for fall semester and academic year programs.

Please note: Students applying for Bridging must also complete the USC Education Abroad Application. The deadline for doing so is March 1 for fall, academic year, and summer programs. If your program begins the following spring, you must meet their Oct. 1 deadline in the year you will be studying abroad. Get more information from the Education Abroad Office.
