Congratulations to HJSF Scholarship recipients!
The Pandemic Plan Continued
The pandemic plan continued again for the 2022-2023 applicants. Instead of competing for a single grand prize we offered multiple smaller ones so that students who were motiviated to learn English on their own would participate. We had our largest turn out this year with over 20 students! The competition was fierce and we had two students tie for the first place prize!

The Pandemic Plan
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students could not travel internationally, so in order to encourage students to continue their English studies, we adapted our scholarship to the Pandemic Plan.
We offered students a chance to win one of three smaller scholarship prizes to help them further their studies at home.
1st place: 50,000円 | 2nd place: 30,000円 | 3rd place: 20,000円
