CWAJ SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS

Messages and Reports from Scholars

 
Welcome to CWAJ’s Scholarship Programs. The unchanging mission of the College Women’s Association of Japan (CWAJ) is supporting higher education and nurturing leaders who will contribute to a better world.

In the years following CWAJ’s foundation in 1949, over 400 men and women from war-devastated Japan received travel grants and were able to take up university places overseas. CWAJ has awarded scholarships annually since 1972. In the four decades since then, more than 400 students have benefited from our scholarships, becoming leaders in their fields in Japan and other countries. CWAJ also recognized the need to support students with visual impairments, starting scholarships for them in 1978. CWAJ continues to evolve to meet the needs of society. The newest scholarship category is the Fukushima Relief Scholarships. These are awarded to undergraduate and graduate students at Fukushima Medical University School of Nursing and who will benefit the Tohoku community in the future by providing skilled and compassionate professional nursing care.

 

CWAJ awards merit scholarships to women only in the Study Abroad and Non-Japanese Graduate scholarship programs described below. However, please note that men can also apply for the scholarships awarded to the visually impaired. Awards are based on the candidates’ academic excellence, the quality and feasibility of their proposed study and their potential to contribute to society. CWAJ is proud to offer Scholarships with no age limits and no restrictions on area of study.
 
The 2016 CWAJ Scholars were introduced at the May Luncheon. Click here for profiles and photos of the 2016 Scholars.
