Scholarship is the vibrant core mission of CWAJ. With founding members in 1949 inspired by the desire to enable Japanese students to accept their offers to study abroad, CWAJ awarded its first 9 Travel Grants in 1951. The Travel Grant program was transformed into the Scholarship Program in 1972, expanding and evolving for almost 50 years.

CWAJ Scholarship Program reflects deep commitment to nurturing leadership, and to supporting and enriching the community, both local and global. Our scholars are leaders and innovators in a variety of fields including government, international relief, the arts, and academia.

Scholarships currently being awarded:

CWAJ Graduate Scholarship for Japanese Women to Study Abroad (1972 to Present)
CWAJ Scholarship for the Visually Impaired (Study in Japan, Study Abroad) (1978 to Present)
CWAJ Graduate Scholarship for Non-Japanese Women to Study in Japan (1981 to Present)

Your donations and support of our Print Show and occasional Cultural Programs enable CWAJ to continue the Scholarship Program.
