We are sharing this for the U.S.-Japan Council:
A couple of weeks ago, we launched the U.S.-Japan Council Toshizo Watanabe Endowed Scholarship for Japanese undergraduate students studying in the U.S. during the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.
This scholarship was made possible through the generous donation of Mr. Toshizo (Tom) Watanabe with the hopes of providing financial assistance for undergraduate students who intend to do a semester or year-long study abroad program in the United States.
We are looking to identify strong candidates for whom study abroad would not be possible without financial support. While not exclusively an academic based scholarship, we are looking for applicants with strong leadership potential. Applicants who have been raised either as an orphan or by a single-parent are also encouraged to apply.
You can find more information about the scholarship on our website:
The application materials are also available in both English and Japanese.
The application close date is April 1st and we are hoping to get as many promising candidates as possible! Degree-seeking as well as limited term, Japanese study abroad students are eligible to apply. This is a full-funding scholarship. So it can cover up to the cost of attendance for a student.
Applicants or others with questions to can direct them to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for helping us to share this wonderful opportunity with the talented Japanese students who want to study in the United States!
