The Tazaki Foundation joins with the Trust to fund PhD and Master’s students

A new studentship has been introduced to support Japanese nationals studying Computer Science at PhD or MPhil level at the University of Cambridge. These studentships will be administered by the Trust in collaboration with Downing College thanks to a generous donation from the Tazaki Foundation.

The Tazaki Foundation was established by Tadayoshi Tazaki, an international business leader and philanthropist, and an alumnus of Downing College, to support Japanese students wishing to pursue their studies in the United Kingdom.  The Foundation creates opportunities for young Japanese people, through studies overseas, to grow into multicultural individuals, whose role is becoming increasingly important in a globalised society.

The Tazaki Cambridge Studentships are fully-funded, providing tuition fees and living costs, and are open to Japanese nationals accepted onto postgraduate courses at PhD or MPhil level in Computer Science, or in a course with a heavy computer science component.  Up to 15 postgraduate students will be supported on this important new programme.
