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.
The deadline for applications is Thursday 1 December 2011.
More information and application details can be found here: http://www.dajf.org.uk/scholarships/general-information. It is possible to apply online.
The Daiwa Scholarship programme was established by The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation in 1991. Aimed at British graduates and future leaders in their fields, it was inspired by the belief that contact between young people would foster mutual understanding and support the long-term relationship between Britain and Japan. Since the programme began, 129 Scholars have benefited from the Scholarship.
The Foundation will select up to six new Daiwa Scholars in April 2012.
Scholars have come from a wide range of disciplines: architecture, art and design, arts and humanities, music, engineering, law, medicine, science, and social science.
