The Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program (JFMF), sponsored by the Government of Japan, provides American primary and secondary school teachers and administrators with fully-funded short-term study tours of Japan. The program is designed to increase understanding between the people of Japan and the United States by inviting U.S. elementary and secondary educators to visit Japan and share their experiences with fellow Americans upon their return. JFMF participants travel to Japan with other outstanding educators, learn about Japanese culture and education, and return to implement a self-designed plan to share their knowledge and experience with their students, colleagues and community.
The Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program was established to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Fulbright Program - a U.S. government-initiated project created in 1946 to foster mutual understanding through exchanges of university students, faculty and researchers. More than 6,800 Japanese people have benefited from the U.S. Fulbright scholarship program. Many Japanese recipients of Fulbright scholarships went on to become leaders in government, business, and academia and were instrumental in the post-war redevelopment of Japan. To show the Japanese people's appreciation for the Fulbright Program, the Government of Japan established the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund and is inviting thousands of American teachers and administrators to Japan over the coming years. The 2006 Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program competition marks the tenth year of this program.
The purpose of the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program is to provide such opportunities to primary and secondary educators to gain first-hand experience of Japanese education and culture.
