UTokyo - Princeton
Princeton and the University of Tokyo provide resources to build durable ties through faculty-designed collaborations, creating the capacity for faculty and students to enhance and sustain academic cooperation by moving back and forth across national borders with the institutional support of their home and host universities.
The University of Tokyo - Princeton Strategic Partnership supports departments, programs, and centers seeking resources to sustain on-going transnational research and teaching collaborations and invites proposals from faculty that promote collaborations between the two institutions.
Call for Proposals
Bilateral collaborative research and teaching ventures should include a balanced representation of scholars from both institutions. Applicants are required to meet any national requirements for funding and follow the general regulations of their respective university. Applications that do not meet these requirements will not be considered.

Maximum support: $10,000.
