Travel Opportunity for Undergrads… Visit Japan!

Dear Student:

Have you ever dreamed of traveling to Japan? Perhaps you
thought it was too far, too difficult, too expensive… Now there is an
opportunity for you to visit Japan at slight expense and be a part of a unique,
prestigious program.

The Kakehashi (Bridge for Tomorrow)
Project
at the Center for East Asian
Studies
at the University of Kansas is going to take 23undergraduates to Japan from June 23 to July 3, 2014. The Project
will pay for most of your expenses during this ten-day study tour to Japan. All
majors in all schools are being sought, but you must be at least 18 years old
and not scheduled to graduate before December 2014 in order to
participate.

Prior to the study tour, all
participants are required to attend two orientation sessions in preparation for
the trip. These will be held from 9:00 AM to noon on Saturday, April
26
th and May 10th in the Pine Room of the
Student Union at the University of Kansas
in Lawrence. After returning from
Asia, each student is required to share his or her understanding of Japan with
students in a local elementary or secondary school. (Center staff will assist
participants in locating an appropriate classroom.) Such presentations can be
tailored to your individual interests.

To
take advantage of this opportunity, you must apply by March 21, 2014.
Applications are available online at
http://www.ceas.ku.edu/kakehashi-bridge-tomorrow-project-application.
Early applications are encouraged. Finalists
will be interviewed during the week of March 31
st and selectees will be
announced soon afterward. For more information, please see
