The Institute on Japan and its Cultures is a study abroad program for Vermont educators in Japan. The program, which includes three instate planning session and three weeks overseas, provides participants with the opportunity to study various aspects of Japan culture such as economic development, education, and women's social status, and minority cultures in Japan.

General Guideline for All Overseas Programs
  • The overseas program is open to Vermont teachers and school administrators only.
  • Each participant must receive his or her school principal's approval to apply for and participate in the program.
  • Teachers in the overseas program are expected to participate in the conferences and workshops sponsored by ASOP in the following year. They are also expected to teach about the country in their schools when they return from abroad.
  • Those who have visited Asia through the ASOP sponsored program must teach about the country for at least two years in order to qualify for participation in another overseas program. This insures a broad base of participation by Vermont teachers.
