In 1995 Macquarie University became the first recipient in Australia of the Tokyo Foundation Fellowship Grant of US $1.5 million to establish the Nippon Foundation Fund for Japanese Education (NF-JLEP), one of the first of such Funds to be established worldwide. The grant came to Macquarie in recognition of the contributions and achievements in the field of teaching advancement in Japanese language and culture and in Japanese teacher education.

The new specialist Centre, the Japanese Studies Centre for Teaching Development (MJS Centre) was established in October 1995 to develop new initiatives in this field. Right from inception, the Centre has been a prime mover in providing the community with innovative and high-quality teaching of Japanese language and culture of international standing.
