Each year, up to eight talented British graduates are awarded with Daiwa Scholarships. The scholarships are tenable in Japan for twenty months, providing UK graduates from any academic or professional background with a lasting knowledge of Japanese life, culture, and spoken and written Japanese. No previous experience of Japan or Japanese language is necessary.
It is hoped that the Daiwa Scholars will maintain their links with the Foundation through the Daiwa Scholars Alumni Association, and contribute to UK-Japan understanding through their chosen career paths.
Since its establishment in 1991, the Daiwa Scholarships programme has funded over 70 Scholars from a wide range of backgrounds and skills, including science, engineering, architecture, law, music, theatre, medicine and art.
The deadline for Daiwa Scholarships 2005 must reach the Foundation by THURSDAY 9 DECEMBER 2004.
