We are happy to announce this year’s scholarship award for high school seniors going onto an accredited two or four year higher education program. This annual program has been honoring selected students with a variable amount scholarship to be used towards their college tuition. The JETAANC scholarship is open to students of U.S. citizenship or lawful permanent residency, living in the California counties north of San Luis Obispo, Kern, and San Bernardino counties, as well as all of Nevada. Applicants are judged based on a number of criteria including a demonstrated commitment to community engagement and service; an interest in Japan, Japanese language, or Japanese culture; academic excellence; and financial need.
The amount of the award this year will be up to $2,500. We have continued to receive highly qualified applicants each year. Last year Jessica Leon of Lowell High School in San Francisco was awarded $2,500 to support her matriculation at the University of California, San Diego in the fall of 2022 with the intention to major in Japanese.
