Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellowships

The Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellowships, funded by Lord Sainsbury of Turville, were founded in 2000 to improve academic linkages with Japanese studies programs in Asia, Europe, Oceania, and North America.

The Fellowships allow participants to work in an academic atmosphere suitable to the completion of a published project.

The fellows will be assigned to a shared office space in Norwich and will be required to reside there for the duration of their term.


  • The £24,000 Fellowship will begin in September 2022 and will last for one year.
  • Please include your desired start date in your application for the six-month Fellowship. It’s possible that this can be worked out. The £12,000 Fellowship is for a period of six months. Fellowships of one year are suggested.
