Every day throughout the fellowship, fellows attended sessions on the Japanese language. Other workshops included topics on the Japanese language, Japanese classical music, arts in Japan, business and tourism in Japan, trends in Japan's foreign policy, problems in Japan's current economic system and social issues.

At the end of the three-week program, each fellow had to present a project. The project discussed how interest in Japan could be encouraged in each fellow's academic fields.
