Research Support for Reinstated Researchers

University of Yamanashi has arranged an institutionalized subsidy system called the “Reinstatement Support System for Maternity/Parental Leave” as a means to support researchers who have been reinstated after maternity/parental leave to once again participate actively in research activities. The financial support that is granted to those who have been reinstated after maternity/parental leave includes participation fees for domestic/foreign academic conferences and the day care fees that follow, and submission fees for dissertations, as well as proofreading fees for English manuscripts.

Participation Fees for Domestic/Foreign Academic Conferences (Round-trip Transportation Expense, Daily Allowance, Lodging Expense): Maximum 50,000JPY

  • Granted to those who have been reinstated within a year at the time of application and will participate in domestic/foreign academic conferences to gather information.
