FUTI has recently begun accepting scholarship applications for 2021. Information is available at friendsofutokyo.org/scholarships-grants. The scholarships are offered to qualified students of UTokyo aspiring to study in universities in the U.S. and to students of universities in the U.S. interested in studying at UTokyo, regardless of nationality.
The FUTI Global Leadership Award supports students interested in summer programs and internships. This program is funded by donations from individual UTokyo alumni and by Shintech, Inc., a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. in Japan.
The Ito Foundation U.S.A.-FUTI Scholarships are awarded to students planning to undertake mid- to long-term study abroad (one semester/two quarters or longer). This program is supported by the Ito Foundation U.S.A. whose president is Mr. Masatoshi Ito. He is the founder and chairman of the Ito Scholarship Foundation (in Japan) and honorary chairman of Seven and i-Holdings Co., Ltd.
We welcome applications from interested students.
