Would you like to apply for a research grant? Come to this workshop to learn basic step by step strategies for improving your chances. Grants-in-Aid are awarded to promote creative and pioneering research across a wide spectrum of scientific fields, ranging from the humanities and social sciences to the natural sciences.

A total of 188 billion yen was awarded in 2005.
