CWAJ PANDEMIC RESPONSE SCHOLARSHIP
FOR NURSING STUDENTS (NS)
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. This scholarship supports nursing students in their second or third-year studies at Kanto metropolitan area universities and Fukushima Medical University. This relief scholarship attracted such strong support from the members and the general public that we are able to offer it again for 2023.
The Nursing Student Scholarships are awarded based on a candidate’s academic excellence, the quality and feasibility of their proposed plan of study, and their 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 Period for the 2022 CWAJ Pandemic Response Scholarship for Nursing Students is now closed. We will no longer be responding to inquiries regarding applications for 2022 scholarships. Thank you for your understanding.
Applications for the 2023 Scholarships will be uploaded to our Japanese website in July 2022. The 2022 application is available in Japanese only on our Japanese web site for reference (link here).
Several Scholarships of ¥0.5 million each
2023 application period: October 3, 2022 – October 10, 2022
