About Akebono Foundation

The Akebono Scholarship was established to foster talented individuals who are eager to learn in Japan. We provide scholarships to those who want to come to Japan but are unable to do so due to financial reasons and support their life in Japan. After their studies in Japan, we hope that they will become a bridge to Japan in the future and that they will be able to build international human networks with other scholarship recipients through the medium of Japan.

■ You can take a Tailor made study

We will provide you with a unique study plan where you can learn from professionals in the field you want to study.
