Dear colleagues of
the universrties participating in the
USCO,
Niigata University has now extended the deadline for application for its USCO summer program "summer Course at
|liigata University: Lessons from Contemporary Japan", 18-29 August, Applications are now accepted until Friday, 13
June.
Consisting of two 2-credit classes, "Environmental Problems and Development of Policies in Japan" and "Japanese
Experiences from Various Perspectives" (coping with natural disasters, business management, international development
cooperation, and international relations), the program provides not only lectures in class rooms but also visits and
meetings to see the reality of the "Lessons from Contemporary Japan". I believe that that design of the program helps
students understand Japan's lessons clearly. It is also a good opportunity to make friends.
The UMAP provides its 800-US dollar Scholarship to ten students who participate in this program of Niigata UnMersity
(Japanese Yen equivalent to US 800 dollars willbe provided to each student on arrivalin Niigata.). Because only four
students had applied for this program by the previous deadline of 30 May (There were eleven and ten participants
respectively in the previous two years.), there are stillgood chances for late applicants for the Scholarship,
I would appreciate it of you could encourage your students to apply for this program.
For more information, please check the following web site or write

Development of Policies in Japan for the first week and an
