This is a series I started on Clubhouse and Instagram on May 19th, 2021. I host 1 scholarship a day ALL weekdays at 11 pm Japan Standard Time/3:00 pm West African Time/2:00 pm GMT/9:00 am CST). Follow me on Instagram here and clubhouse here and Facebook here to join in.
The scholarship supports excellent students from other countries who are studying or doing research at Japanese institutions of higher learning and who will go on to play active roles in both their own countries and international society.
The Yoneyama Scholarship program was inaugurated to commemorate Mr. Umekichi Yoneyama, a businessman who made a great contribution to establishing Japan’s first Rotary club, the Rotary Club of Tokyo. Initiated by the club in 1952, the program was expanded to a joint undertaking by Rotary clubs all across Japan.
In 1967, the program became the Rotary Yoneyama Memorial Foundation, having received authorization from the Ministry of Education (now the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology).
The purpose of the Foundation is to grant scholarships to non-Japanese students who are pursuing academic studies and/or research in Japanese universities and other schools and who will go on to play active roles in their respective countries and international society.
Successful applicants must arrive in Japan prior to the designated month of admission. If not entered Japan by the month scholarship commences, the eligibility will automatically be lost.
Undergraduates: 100,000 yen per month
Masters students: 140,000 yen per month
Doctoral students: 140,000 yen per month
Only for the first year of the scholarship, a supplemental of 400,000 yen is provided upon arrival in Japan.
