Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation: Daiwa Scholarship
The Daiwa Scholarship is a unique 19-month programme of language study, work placement and homestay in Japan, following a month of Japanese language tuition in the UK. Daiwa Scholarships offer young and talented UK citizens with strong leadership potential, the opportunity to acquire Japanese language skills, and to access expertise and knowledge relevant to their career goals.
No previous experience of Japan or Japanese is necessary.
176 Daiwa Scholars – including scientists, artists, academics, lawyers and architects – have completed the Daiwa Scholarship programme.
Daiwa Scholarships are provided by the Foundation to encourage better understanding between both countries.

The deadline for the 2020 programme is Thursday 5 December 2019.
Up to eight Scholars will be selected in 2020.
