Calling all interested high school students!
Asia Kakehashi Project is now open for application until February 10, 2021. High school students (born after April 2, 2003, and before April 1, 2006) who have an interest in experience studying in Japan for an academic year are highly encouraged to apply here for a full scholarship funded by the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology.
The Asia Kakehashi Project is an initiative created by former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in order to strengthen relations between Japan and its neighboring Asian countries. The said program provides full scholarships to 1,000 Asian high school students, giving them the opportunity to study in Japan’s public and private schools over the next five years. Now in its 4th cycle, the said program will improve the scholars’ global competence skills and share their countries’ culture with more than 40,000 Japanese students.
Another goal of this program is to expose Asian high school students to Japanese culture, local communities, and industries. This means that the students will stay in Japanese host families or in a school dormitory.
