Associated Kyoto Program


The Associated Kyoto Program, Inc. (AKP) is a non-profit organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It operates an independent program for undergraduate students from sponsoring American colleges and universities in cooperation with Doshisha University. Since its inception in 1972, the AKP has provided study opportunities in Kyoto for over 1,450 students and, with assistance from foundations and corporations, has provided fellowships to dozens of American and Japanese faculty members for research and teaching abroad. In addition to inviting Visiting Faculty Fellows from our consortium institutions to offer classes and conduct research in Kyoto, the AKP recruits scholars living in Kyoto to offer special seminars to complete the curriculum.
