Japan Future Scholarship Program

Japan Future Scholarship Program gives financial aid to students graduating from high school and pursue higher education with the funds from private donors. We continue this financial support with the belief that youths rising above hardships to study further and contribute to society in the future are an asset, and society should invest in them.

BEYOND Tomorrow students experienced adversities such as loss of/separation from parents, living under foster care, etc. yet are determined to receive further education and make society a better place in the future. Our selection places focus on the applicants’ personal impact and potential instead of just evaluating their academic abilities. We look for youths with potential to transform their difficult experiences into abilities to act for others in need with a strong sense of compassion.

Endeavor

エンデバーEndeavor is a scholarship program for high school students in foster care group homes
Youths placed under foster care after experiencing hardships like abuse, neglect, etc. have a low rate of pursuing higher education after graduating from high school. Approximately 10% go on to 4-year universities. In this context, we support high school students trying to rise above hardships and work for others in need.
