In 1980, Hosei University in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of its founding, established the Hosei International Fund (HIF) to advance international cooperation in academic research and scholarship. As one undertaking covered by this fund, academics may apply to the HIF Fellowship Program, also known as the Foreign Scholars Fellowship Program. Invitations are extended to young scholars from abroad who are, at the least, enrolled in a doctoral degree program to apply to the HIF Fellowship Program to carry out non-degree research programs at Hosei University under the direction of and/or in cooperation with Hosei faculty and researchers. It is expected that joint cooperation and coordination with Hosei faculty will contribute much to the development of the university’s research capabilities.
