Kanagawa University introduced a fellowship program earlier than other universities, launching its first program in 1933, shortly after the university was founded.
Fellowship selection is conducted in major urban centers throughout Japan, allowing the program to furnish assistance to highly motivated students from across the country. This program has helped the university educate many talented individuals, and the tradition that the program initiated has since been extended to encompass a range of other scholarship schemes.
Furthermore, in the 2010 academic year a new Yoneda Yoshimori Education Scholarship fund was established in honor of our founder Yoneda Yoshimori, and the existing scholarship system was augmented by a greatly expanded menu of grant style awards requiring no repayment. The conditions are now in place for students to pursue their studies and extracurricular activities, obtain qualifications, and engage in other pursuits regardless of individual financial circumstances.
The founding spirit of Kanagawa University and the philosophy espoused by our founder, one that equates education with human development, are alive and well in our university today, and finding fresh horizons in the form of this new scholarship program.
