The U.S.-Japan Council Toshizo Watanabe Endowed Scholarship

Japanese | 日本語


The Toshizo Watanabe Endowed Scholarship provides financial assistance to undergraduates for a term or year-long study abroad program in either the United States or Japan. A generous endowment gift of $10 million from Mr. Toshizo (Tom) Watanabe to the U.S.-Japan Council funds these scholarships for students for whom study abroad would not be possible without financial support. 

The scholarship will support up to the full cost of attendance to the study abroad program of the applicant’s choice. The scholarship amount will be determined by the applicant’s financial need and other qualifications.

For more information on the scholarship's establishment, please read the press release.
