The Inamori Foundation announced the 50 recipients of the 2022 Inamori Grants on March 11, 2022. Out of 411 applicants (natural sciences: 363; humanities and social sciences: 48), 40 from the field of natural sciences and 10 from the field of humanities and social sciences were selected through the rigorous selection. Each single recipient will be awarded one million yen with little scrutiny of how the recipients use the grant as far as it is used for the research purpose.
The Inamori Research Grants Program was inaugurated in 1985 with the aim of supporting young scholars to carry out their research activities freely and without restrictions in pursuing diversity and originality. Recipients are chosen from a wide range of research areas, across the fields of the natural, human, and social sciences. The total number of recipients and amounts turned 1,781 and 1.77 billion yen including the 50 recipients for 2022.
The 2023 Inamori Grants application will open on July 1, 2022.
*The presentation ceremony for this year has been canceled due to concerns about the coronavirus.
