Making a Better Future!

Across the globe, educated women are powerful agents of social change, transforming families and societies. CWAJ’s mission is to support higher education, nurturing future leaders who will contribute to a better world. 

Over the past seven decades, CWAJ has provided scholarships and grants to over 860 individuals from 48 countries for university study for women outside their home countries, visually impaired men and women from Japan, and more recently, the CWAJ Pandemic Response Scholarship for Nursing Students. CWAJ also provides encouragement to young print artists through its art awards. 

These scholarships are funded by individual and corporate donations and the proceeds from the CWAJ Print Show, an annual exhibition and sale of Japanese prints. CWAJ is a 100% volunteer organization and all donations, as well as the proceeds from the Print Show, go directly to CWAJ’s Scholarship and Education programs.
