In 2014 JASW established the Tanaka and Green Academic Scholarships to support short-term academic study (one semester or one academic year) at colleges and universities in Japan. The scholarships are made possible thanks to the Society’s H. William and Lily Tanaka Scholarship Endowment and the Marshal and Lispenard Green Educational Endowment.

The Society will give $5000 for one academic year and $4000 for one academic semester. The scholarship may be used for any combination of tuition and other academic fees, room and board, travel and transportation (including internal Japan travel), and other approved expenses.

The Japan-America Society of Washington DC (JASWDC) is pleased to announce the one-time reopening of the Tanaka and Green Academic Scholarships to support short-term academic study (one semester or one academic year) at colleges and universities in Japan during the spring of 2018. Applications will be accepted until February 15, 2018
