How to apply

e-rad

Please submit your Research Proposal via e-Rad. No proposal for which the application procedure has not been completed via e-Rad by the deadline is subject to examination for any reason.
Since e-Rad system has not fully supported the application in English, it is recommended that Japanese associates apply on behalf of those who are not used to handling paperwork in Japanese.

If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of this website says and Japanese language version says, then the Japanese language version shall take precedence.
