The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) also known as Gakushin, is an independent administrative institution. It provides various fellowships for researchers to conduct, under the guidance of their Japanese hosts, cooperative research with leading research groups in universities and other Japanese institutions. As Japan’s premier research funding agency, JSPS carries out a diverse program that includes funding scientific research, fostering young researchers, promoting international scientific exchange, and supporting the reform and globalization of universities. Its annual budget in 2011 fiscal year was ¥334.7 billion. The JSPS is equivalent to both Science Foundation Ireland and the Ireland Research Council for Japan, covering all disciplinary areas.
