Robert Lyons Danly 1969 Memorial Travel Fellowship
Competition Type


Note: Application to this fellowship competition will be via the CIPE Research Fellowships Common Application

The Robert Lyons Danly 1969 Memorial Travel Fellowship was established to support undergraduate students at Yale pursuing research or independent study (excluding language study) in Japan during the summer. This fellowship is made possible through the generosity of Malcolm M. Brown, M.D., ’69, in memory of the late Robert Lyons Danly. The intention of the fellowship is to honor Professor Danly’s accomplishments as a leading translator and scholar of Japanese literature, by making it possible for Yale undergraduates to travel to Japan for research and independent study purposes.

All first years, sophomores and juniors who are U.S. citizens and whose past studies have had a demonstrated focus on Japan, including, but not limited to, language study, are eligible to apply. The fellowship may also be used to assist undergraduates in other fields of study who are pursuing Japan-related research.

Important note: This fellowship is not intended to support language study.

The proposed project must be a full-time commitment and be the primary activity for the duration of the fellowship.
