The deadline for all application materials is Monday, April 8, 2019 by 3:00 PM.


Eligible students are those registered at the University of Chicago for the quarter before they go abroad and who will be registered (and taking classes) the quarter that follows the completion of their program in Japan.  In exceptional circumstances, applications from graduating students will be considered.   Preference will be given to applicants attending KCJS for the full academic year, but students enrolling for only Fall or Spring semester are also eligible. 

Applicants have to have completed or tested out of Japanese 103 (or the equivalent) by the program start date.
