Daiwa Foundation Tohoku Scholarships
Description: In response to the 11 March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in the north east of Japan, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, in partnership with the British Council in Japan, has launched a £250,000 scholarship fund to support Japanese students in the Tohoku region.
The aim of this initiative is to support post-secondary level students from any part of Tohoku1, in particular those areas most affected by the recent events (Miyagi, Fukushima and Iwate prefectures) seeking to study for a period at an educational institution in the United Kingdom. Applications will also be considered from students from the Tohoku region who are currently studying in the UK but who require financial support to continue their studies. Moreover, we welcome applications from those students from Tohoku who seek to contribute to the recovery and regeneration of the region.
Scholarship applications may be submitted for the following types of courses, beginning in 2011, 2012 or 2013:
• Undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses (including foundation programmes) in all subject areas
• PhD and post-doctoral research programmes
• Vocational courses at universities and colleges of further education
• English language courses (e.g. pre-sessional courses, English language summer schools)
Value: The amount of funding available will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Sufficient funding will be awarded to cover fees, living expenses and travel expenses for an applicant’s intended course, in line with its level and duration. Therefore, applicants are required to explain their vision for the future and financial plans as part of the application process. Priority will be given to students who can demonstrate seriousness of purpose and financial need.
Eligibility: Successful applicants must secure a place on a course of study at a UK institution in order to take up funding.
Contact details: Further information including application form can be found on Daiwa Foundation Tohoku website
