The 3rd MIF Study Tour for the Academic Year 2018 was organized between December 9th and 12th, 2018. 6 MIF fellows from Bangladesh, Egypt, Serbia, Kyrgyz, and Bhutan visited Kyoto, Nara, Miyajima and Hiroshima. At the dinner on the first day, Professor TAKARA of Kyoto University, Dr. Bosko MILOVANOVIC’s host professor was kind enough to join us. This tour is organized by MIF annually and it gives important opportunities for the fellows to understand the cultures and tradition of Japan and think profoundly about the meaning of world peace.

On the 6th of December, Dr. Charles MURIGANDE, a former Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Rwanda to Japan, was welcomed by Chairperson HASHIMOTO and the Secretariat members here at MIF. Dr. MURIGANDE served as the Minister of Transport and Communications, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Cooperation and the Minister of Education under the current President Kagame’s administration. Dr. MURIGANDE now assumes an important role at the University of Rwanda.

MIF has ever invited and hosted 4 researchers from Rwanda in the past but none since 1991. Over the meeting table, Dr. MURIGANDE and Professor HASHIMOTO have agreed to take all the measures to increase applications from Rwanda by developing the relationship between Rwanda and MIF.

This is to announce that the applicants with the following reference numbers have successfully been named as the recipients of 2019 MIF Research Fellowship Program. The future recipients will receive the Grant Letters from MIF by post before the end of this year. MIF also likes to take this opportunity to congratulate them for their achievements.
