  1. English Language Fellow Program
    Summary and Program Overview: The Office of English Language Programs (ECA/A/L) invites posts to apply to participate in the English Language (EL) Fellow Program for academic year 2010-2011, subject to the availability of funds.

    EL Fellows carry out ten-month English language projects -- proposed by posts in consultation with Regional English Language Officers (RELOs) -- at universities and other language institutions in all regions of the world. Each post should work closely with its respective RELO to identify, design, and oversee EL Fellow projects. Because Senior EL Fellow projects require a higher level of English as a foreign/second language (EFL/ESL), experience and management skills, posts and RELOs must work closely together to identify and define Senior projects. The deadline for submission of EL Fellow proposals, including renewals, is January 20, 2010. ECA/A/L will notify posts of the approval of requests around February 19, 2010.

  3. International Graduate Program for Advanced Science (IGPAS)
    Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University

    International Graduate Program for Advanced Science (IGPAS) is an interdisciplinary graduate program in the Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University. It was established in October 2004 as the first international graduate program founded in Japanese national universities. IGPAS offers courses in English for international students who are eager to obtain master’s and doctoral degrees from the Graduate School of Science. It also aims to educate Japanese students to exert their abilities as internationally-active, professional scientists.

    IGPAS has proudly reserved positions of Japanese government scholarship for its master’s students since its foundation, and in 2008, IGPAS-Super Doctoral Course (SDC) has been started for doctoral students jointly with the Institute for the International Advanced Research and Education (IIARE) of Tohoku University. Students of IGPAS-SDC benefit from fellowship by IIARE to promote world top-level, interdisciplinary research at the Graduate School of Science.

    Prospective students will have excellent opportunities to study modern science and conduct cutting-edge research with top-level scientists currently working at Tohoku University.

    IGPAS is a 5-year graduate program as the combination of a 2-year master’s program and a 3-year doctoral program. Each student belongs to one of six departments, which are divided into three groups according to the GCOE programs:(i) Chemistry, (ii) Mathematics, Astronomy, and Physics, and (iii) Earth Science and Geophysics.

    The academic year of IGPAS starts in October. The Graduate School of Science will admit at most 20 students each for the master’s and doctoral programs each year.
