|The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) is a scholarly, non-political, non-profit professional association open to all persons interested in Asia and the study of Asia. With approximately 8,000 members worldwide, representing all the regions and countries of Asia and all academic disciplines, the AAS is the largest organization of its kind. With over 3,000 attendees in the Annual Conference each year, 350+ panel sessions, a book exhibition, and much more, the AAS Annual Conference is the must-attend event for anyone interested in the study of Asia.
Thus, the Japan Foundation is now opening for the application of those emerging scholars who are teaching about Japan at the educational institutions; and those scholars who are to be participated in the accepted panel sessions at the conference. This travel support gives assistance to emerging scholars in Thailand to attend the Annual Conference of Association for Asian Studies held in Denver, Colorado, USA on March 21–24, 2019. By doing so, the Japan Foundation hopes to see stronger working relationship cultivated among Japan scholars in Asia, North America, and Japan.
