Global East Asia Japan is a scholarship summer study abroad program administered by the USC East Asian Studies Center. Made possible by a generous grant from the Freeman Foundation, the program provides a small group of USC undergraduate students the opportunity to study abroad in Tokyo, Japan with all major expenses covered: roundtrip international airfare from LAX, basic housing and meals, travel within Japan, and local transportation and entrance fees related to the course.

This year, fourteen students were chosen through a competitive application process to participate in the program, which is based at Meiji University. While abroad, they will take “Tokyo and Beyond: Global Forces and Economic Transformation” (EASC 360 Global East Asia) taught by Saori Katada, USC Associate Professor of International Relations. The students will also travel extensively throughout Japan for a unique, intensive experience, shared through this blog.

Global East Asia is also offered in China and Korea. For more information, please visit the website:
