Recipients should conduct research in areas with themes that have the potential to become national projects in the future. Other recipients are to include those who have achieved distinguished results in the fundamental sciences. Tokyo Tech seeks to support upcoming 'shining-stars' in the next generation of researchers through the STAR grant.
