Rotary Yoneyama Scholarship for applicants residing abroad is for overseas students scheduled to enroll in a Japanese university/graduate school. All Rotary International District in Japan will open for 2019 enrollment. Applicants are expected to have Japanese language proficiency: to understand basic Japanese: JLPT N4 level.
A group of schools have been designated to participate in the scholarship program. Each may recruit, screen and nominate candidates for scholarships. Their nominations are forwarded to the Rotary Selection Committee for final review and decision, which will be within the school’s Rotary District. The selection process, therefore, is two-tiered: the first stage is conducted by the schools and the second stage, by the Rotary Selection Committee.
The scholarship supports excellent students from other countries who are studying or doing research at Japanese institutions of higher learning. The Rotary Yoneyama Scholarship expects, that its graduates will go on to play active roles in both their home countries and across the globe.
During their stay in Japan, Yoneyama Scholars experience firsthand Japanese culture and customs, enabling them to form bridges between their countries and Japan. Through their interactions with Rotary Club members, it is hoped that the Scholars will cultivate within themselves, a strong spirit of societal participation. In the future, they will be expected to make their own contribution to cultivating and sustaining world peace and harmony, an ideal embraced by all Rotarians.
