The Daiwa Foundation in partnership with the British Council has launched a £250,000 scholarship fund to support Japanese students in the Tohoku region wishing to study in the United Kingdom.
The initiative will support post-secondary level students from any part of Tohoku , 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.
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.
Application forms can be downloaded from the British Council (Japan)'s website. The application deadline is the 31st of August 2011. The selection panel will meet in September 2011 to assess applications and applicants will be informed of the results immediately thereafter.
