[4/17 Sun 19:00- ] Webinar “How to write a better Gakushin(学振) proposal”

4月2日と4月10日にワークショップ「より良い学振申請書(DC1/DC2)を作成しよう」を日本語で開催したのですが、英語版での実施要望もありまして、確かに英語での情報が足りないと感じたので、急遽ではありますが Webinar を実施いたします。英語での情報を求めている方にご共有いただければ幸いです!
参考: 4月2日の様子(https://edulab.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/2022-04-02-report-jsps-researcher/ )、4月10日の様子(https://edulab.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/2022-04-10-report-jsps-researcher/

On April 2 and April 10, we held the workshop “より良い学振申請書(DC1/DC2)を作成しよう” in Japanese, but there were requests for an English version, and we felt that there was certainly not enough information available in English, so we will hold a webinar. We would be happy to share this information with anyone who wants it in English!

[Title] How to write a better Gakushin(学振) proposal

This webinar will be held to share and discuss key points in preparing the JSPS application form (学振申請書) required when applying for a JSPS’s Research Fellowships for Young Scientists (DC). Although the benefits of being selected are great, I, Yoshida, feel that preparing the application itself will lead to refinement of your research content and plan. Therefore, I would very much like to have you prepare a good research proposal and conduct better research (I would like to conduct the kind of workshop that I wish I had when I was a student).
In the workshop, I will first share what you should keep in mind when preparing the Gakusho application form, as well as reference information. Then, I will give my example and share detalied tips for writing a proposal. Finally, I will answer questions.

[About JSPS’s Research Fellowships for Young Scientists (DC)]
JSPS’s Research Fellowships for Young Scientists (DC) provides an environment in which you can concentrate on your research. Specifically, as a Research Fellow, you will receive a monthly research grant of 200,000 yen (non-repayable) and research expenses of up to 1.5 million yen each year. In addition, 87.7% of those selected as a Researh Fellow (DC) have been appointed to a “full-time research position” within 10 years (Source: Results of the FY 2020 Survey on the Employment Status of Research Fellow-DC https://www.jsps.go.jp/j-pd/data/pd_syusyoku/r2_dcgaiyou.pdf accessed on 12 March 2022).

Furthermore, as described in the overview, I feel that through the process of preparing an application for a research fellowship, the research plan will be refined, and I encourage all students entering the doctoral program to prepare an application.
