Hokkaido Summer Institute 2018 website is open and time for application.
PARE summer school will be enrolled in a scheme of Hokkaido Summer Institute (HSI 2018) as same as HSI 2017 held last summer.
Through HSI, applicants will get benefit from easier access to visa application and to secure of dormitory.
In order for us to benefit from its service, we would like to kindly ask for your help in calling PARE Summer School 2018 applications.
As mentioned below, we are planning to offer scholarship to 2-3 candidates per each consortium university, including 2-3 students from UGM, so we would like to at least call for applications of 2-3 students.
It would be highly appreciated if you could kindly notify us of the list of candidates by Feb 21, 2018. Once candidates are chosen at your university, please, kindly ask them to directly apply to the PARE Program Summer School 2018 through HSI website (http://hokkaidosummerinstitute.oia.hokudai.ac.jp/), by 5:00pm, Feb. 28, 2018, Wednesday, Japan time.
HSI on-line application process is much easier and lighter than the ones which is normally being used, so it should not take too much time to complete. It needs to be submitted “online”, but I am attaching herewith the sample of HSI application form for your reference. If you or your students ever have questions regarding this application, please kindly let us know.
Kindly refer below for the PARE Summer School 2018 Scheme:
Ø Scholarship: HU is planning to offer scholarship of 70,000 yen for 2-3 students per each consortium university for those who is willing to complete PARE Short Program (1 credit of Introduction to PARE I ~ IV + 3 credits of PARE Summer School)
Ø Air ticket will NOT be provided
Ø Dormitory can be secured for those who applied through HSI website at lower cost (depending on availabilities, however, it costs normally around 1,000 yen/day + utilities, so if one stays over 2 weeks of summer school, room charge can be estimated around 20,000 yen or so. Transportation cost to campus (normally around 700 yen round trip/day), eating and shopping costs would need to be added. *Kindly note that this estimation is subject to change).
Please ask Summer School 2017 participants from your university for more detail about cost.
Ø Registration Fee for Summer School 2018 is 40,000 JPY, same as 2017.
Status of Special Auditor will be given at HU for those who are admitted. 2 credits (PARE Field Work Training I for PARE: Population-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain) and 1 credit (Seminar I for PARE: Population-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain), a total of 3 credits will be officially given after successful completion of the school.
