In mid-July an FUTI Advisory Committee member, Ms. Nobuko Sakurai, and an FUTI staff, Dr. Masako Osako, visited the five recipients of 2012 FUTI awards studying at Yale University. The students were all very busy with daily home work, classroom presentations and team projects. But, at the same time, they fully enjoyed the campus life, building close friendship with U.S. and international students. “I recommend the summer study at Yale to those who are determined to study very hard,” one of the participants commented.
Ms. Sari Yamashita (a senior of the Agriculture Department, majoring in Agriculture and Resources Economics) was enrolled in a GSP (Global Summer Program) course, “Topics in International Economics,” and Ms. Ayako Sakamoto (a senior of the Agriculture Department, majoring in Environmental Biology), in another GSP course, “Sustainability and Institutions.”
