International Student Seminar for Global Citizenship and Peace

The INU International Student Seminar on Global Citizenship and Peace is an annual global student immersion program offered at Hiroshima University in Japan. The seminar is structured around the August 6 commemoration of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The 2023 Seminar will take place August 1-10 in Hiroshima. CGE sponsors 2-3 students to represent JMU at this seminar each year. Applications for 2023 are closed. The next application cycle will open in spring 2024.

The 2022 seminar was held August 3-12 with the theme "The Age of Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities and Concerns." As an INU member, JMU sent two students and one faculty member to participate in the conference.

Researcher Mobility Program

JMU doctoral students are invited to apply for the Researcher Mobility Program, an initiative designed to encourage the development of international research collaborations between members of the International Network of Universities (INU).

The Researcher Mobility Program offers faculty researchers and PhD students (or equivalent) the opportunity to establish an international research collaboration with another INU member university.  The purpose of this program is to develop joint research initiatives between INU member universities and to share expertise between research centres.  Visits should be for 2-4 weeks and should form the basis for future collaboration between the two research centres.

In 2023 the INU offered five awards of up to $2,000 each year, which contribute toward travel and living costs to facilitate the visit. Applications are likely to re-open in early 2024.

Henry Fong Award

The Henry Fong Award is based on a competitive process available to students who attended the INU Student Seminar for Global Citizenship and Peace in Hiroshima, Japan. The 2022 award winner was a student from JMU!
