Connecting MIT with research and industry in Japan

Each year through the MIT-Japan Program, 30 to 40 MIT students intern and conduct research in Japanese companies, universities and research institutes. The ULVAC-Hayashi Seed Fund facilitates dozens of research collaborations between MIT faculty and their Japanese counterparts. Our partners are leading Japanese companies, universities and research organizations.

In Memory of Patricia Gercik (1944–2019)

Gifts to the Patricia Gercik Memorial Fund will provide supplemental stipends to students participating in the MIT- Japan program, within the MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI).
