Study Japanese and circumnavigate the world with a Peace Boat scholarship


Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment. It carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on global voyages. The ship circumnavigates the globe over 100+ days each voyage and typically travels to 15-20 countries.

From this year, Peace Boat is offering scholarships to students of Japanese language through a 'Global Friendship Award'. Japanese language students enrolled at universities are invited to apply. Recipients will study everyday as they travel the globe in a total immersion environment of 600-900 Japanese, with the goal of promoting and fostering friendship and spreading goodwill around the world. The programme is designed to complement students’ current courses of study.
