Pandemic Response Scholarship for Nursing Students


Several Scholarships of ¥0.5 million each

In Spring 2020, early in the Covid-19 pandemic, CWAJ again showed its forte – responding to a crisis with a scholarship. As the pandemic took a toll on the Japanese health care system, it was brought to the attention of CWAJ that nursing students are facing financial hardship, such as being barred from having part-time work to avoid potentially bringing the virus into a care facility.

From our 9-year experience of supporting nursing students with the Fukushima Relief Scholarship, we turned our attention anew to nurses who play a critical role in this health crisis. CWAJ fulfills its mission to support women through the NS, which was created for female nursing students in their second or third-year studies at Kanto metropolitan area universities and Fukushima Medical University. This relief scholarship attracted such immense support from the members and the general public that we are able to offer it again for 2022.

The NS Scholarships are awarded based on a candidate’s academic excellence, the quality and feasibility of the proposed study, and the potential to contribute to society, as well as a consideration for financial difficulties imposed by the pandemic restrictions. The Scholarship does not impose restrictions on age of the applicant.The application form is available in Japanese only.

Please visit the CWAJ Japanese website for more information and to obtain an application.
