*   Introduction to Japanese language and culture (3 credits): Develop Japanese skills in the classroom to use throughout your time in Japan.
*   Internship or research experience (4 credits): Placements are based on the student’s interests and may include research activities or internships with local environmental organizations, government agencies, etc.

Scholarship funding is available to students.

All of the information about the ESJ scholarships<> and internship stipends<> is available on the Center website. The deadline for applications is March 7th, and they will continue to accept applicants until the program is full (about 10 students).
