This is the 8th LKY Japan Study Trip, which will be held from Feb. 23 to Mar. 3. The purpose of the trip is to provide an opportunity for students of Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore (LKYSPP) and GraSPP to study Japanese public policy through discussions and visits to stakeholders such as ministries, local governments, and local industries. GraSPP Day, which is a tradition of LKYSPP Japan Study Trip, will be held on March 2 as a conclusion for the trip. (Another announcement on GraSPP Day will be made separately)
We are recruiting operation members of the trip and there will be funding available for them.

- Participate meetings (around 2 meetings will be held) of operation members to better prepare for the trip (dates will be decided after the list of operation members is finalized)

We look for applicants who can contribute to smooth operation of the trip as well as who are willing to welcome LKY students with great hospitality!
