The Daiwa Scholarship is a unique 19-month programme of language study, work placement and homestay in Japan.
Daiwa Scholarships offer young and talented UK citizens with strong leadership potential, the opportunity to acquire Japanese language skills, and to access expertise and knowledge relevant to their career goals.
No previous experience of Japan or Japanese is necessary.
As of April 2012, 135 Daiwa Scholars – including scientists, artists, academics, lawyers and architects – will have benefited from the Daiwa Scholarships.
Daiwa Scholarships are provided by the Foundation to encourage better understanding between both countries.
The closing date for Daiwa Scholarship 2013 applications is Thursday 6 December 2012. The online application will be available from September 2012.
The Foundation is also happy to provide advice about possible applications – please contact email@example.com.
