One professor from Kyushu University’s Faculty of Human-Environment Studies and two from its Faculty of Agriculture were commended by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) for their contributions helping to select deserving researchers for JSPS’s Research Fellowships for Young Scientists.
JSPS recognized Professor Hiroyuki Yamaguchi, Faculty of Human-Environment Studies, and Professor Atsushi Kume and Professor Emeritus Toshitaka Uchino, Faculty of Agriculture, for their valuable and constructive opinions as document reviewers of JSPS’s Screening Committee.
Document reviewers play a prominent role in the selection of applicants for JSPS’s Research Fellowships for Young Scientists, as their evaluations and opinions of the applications set the foundation for the following two rounds of the selection process. The reviewers also assist in the selection process for other programs promoting international collaborations.
Last year, 1,500 researchers were involved in the document review of the over 11,000 applications for the fellowships, and 109 document reviewers received commendations out of the around 600 document reviewers serving the second year of their terms.
Such activities are just one example of the many ways that Kyushu University faculty and staff continue to actively promote the development of young scientists who will shape the future.
