        How to Find Your Host Professor

        You are supposed to find your host professor for the research at the University of Michigan/UCLA. Go to University of Michigan/UCLA and check out their researches. Once you found research theme(s) in which you are interested, get in touch with the corresponding professor(s) and ask them if they accept you as a visiting graduate researcher. On the contact, we would strongly recommend to attach a recommendation letter from your supervisor at Nagoya University, in addition to your CV, or ask your stay from your supervisor. Although you do not have to find the host professor and get his/her agreement by the application, we take it into account on the selection.
