JFNY & CGP NEWSLETTER | January 15, 2022
Current Opportunities
CGP and The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation are pleased to announce the recruitment of the 6th cohort of participants for the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future program. The program seeks to nurture a new generation of scholars and professionals working on the following policy issues: those in which the two countries confront common domestic challenges and those in which the two countries have opportunities to work together to resolve global challenges.

Throughout the two-year program, the cohort will explore how resiliency, inclusivity, and science and technology lay at the center of domestic and global challenges faced by both countries and will be encouraged to explore how these areas intersect with their research interests.

Upcoming Events
