In 2014 JASWDC established the Tanaka and Green Academic Scholarships to support short-term academic study (one semester or one academic year) at colleges and universities in Japan. The scholarships are made possible thanks to the Society’s H. William and Lily Tanaka Scholarship Endowment and the Marshal and Lispenard Green Educational Endowment.

The Society will give up to $5,000 for one academic year and up to $4,000 for one academic semester for the 2021-2022 academic year. The scholarship may be used for any combination of tuition and other academic fees, room and board, travel and transportation (including travel within Japan), and other approved expenses.

Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year are closed.

Inquiries

Any questions about the JASWDC Tanaka and Green Scholarships Program should be submitted in writing to JASWDC at scholarships@jaswdc.org for response by the Scholarship Committee. Please do not call.
