BRIDGE Program

Since 2009, the BRIDGE Fellowship Program is provided exclusively for regular members of officially established JSPS alumni associations who have conducted research activities in Japan under the Postdoctoral Fellowships for Foreign Researchers or other JSPS programs. It gives them an opportunity to create, sustain and/or strengthen research collaborations with Japanese colleagues during another stay in Japan (from 14 up to 30 days). The objective is to build strong networks among researchers in Japan and other countries through a variety of activities and to expand the worldwide network of JSPS fellows.

In Germany, the selection procedure is jointly organized by the German JSPS Alumni Association and the JSPS Bonn Office.


The BRIDGE program was tendered for the year 2023. The application deadline is December 16, 2022, 8 AM in the morning (date of receipt). Application documents (form A, form B) must be send via e-mail to the JSPS Bonn Office. Applications that arrive too late will not be considered.


Further information about the BRIDGE Program can be found on the JSPS Website. If you have any further inquiries, please contact our staff at the JSPS Bonn Office.
