Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation

Up to eight Daiwa Scholarships, tenable in Japan for twenty months, will be awarded in April 2001 by the Trustees of the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation.

The purpose of the Scholarships is to enable outstanding young UK graduates in any academic discipline, career or aspect of the creative and performing arts, to acquire a lasting knowledge of Japanese life and culture and of spoken and written Japanese. Successful candidates will take up their Scholarships in Japan in September 2001 and complete them on 30 April 2003. The first year (including a month's homestay) will be spent at a Japanese language school and will be followed by a combination of language study and work placement.

In addition to free language tuition and free travel to Japan, Scholars will receive grants at an annual rate of not less than 3,000,000 Japanese Yen to cover accommodation and living costs.

Candidates must be citizens of the UK, aged twenty or over on 1 January 2001, and must have completed their first degree by the summer of 2001. Candidates already engaged in research or a career may also apply, but graduates in Japanese or candidates who already have an equivalent proficiency in Japanese will not be considered.

Candidates will be expected to combine high personal and intellectual qualities with potential for leadership. Preliminary selection will be in February and March 2001. Candidates on the final short list will be interviewed by the Trustees in early April 2001.

Further information and application forms may be requested from Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, Ref DS 2001, Daiwa Foundation Japan House, 13-14 Cornwall Terrace, London, NW1 4QP (fax 020 7486 2914; e-mail: scholarships@daiwa-foundation.org.uk), or from the website http://www.daiwa-foundation.org.uk/.

Three copies of the completed application form together with three photographs must be submitted by post by Friday 1 December 2000.
