The Tokyo Foundation is pleased to announce the 12 recipients of SRA awards in the first screening round for fiscal 2016. We received a large number of applications from fellows, including many who are pursuing a doctoral degree at non-Sylff institutions. We are glad that they have chosen to reaffirm their ties with the Sylff community, and it is our pleasure to support their research abroad. Congratulations to all the winning applicants! We send you our best wishes and hope that opportunity to study abroad will further enrich and enhance your dissertation. The names of the awardees and their home and the host institutions can be viewed here.
