Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation joins with the Trust to fund Master’s students

A Master’s student from Japan will be able to study at Cambridge from this October thanks to a new scholarship, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Cambridge Scholarship, which will be jointly funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the Cambridge Trust.

The scholarship will fund the tuition fee for any one-year Master’s course available at the University, up to a cap of £35,000, as well as a stipend. It is tenable at any College within the University of Cambridge. Applicants must be citizens of Japan.

The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation is a UK charity established in 1988 with a generous benefaction from Daiwa Securities Co. Ltd. Its purpose is to support closer links between Britain and Japan via the award of grants and scholarships and the organisation of events to increase the understanding of Japan in the UK.

The Foundation’s Director General, Jason James read Japanese Studies at King’s College, Cambridge (1987) where he was a double scholar (academic and choral).
