The Scholarship Fund was developed for students who have been severely affected by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. We appreciate any support to help these students and their families.

To donate to the Scholarship Fund, you can either send a Bank Transfer or via PayPal. Due to the processing fees involved with PayPal, we ask that if you are located in Japan to please consider the Bank Transfer option. Also, for international transfers over ¥100,000 ($1,150), international wire transfers are preferred due to lower overall handling fees.

For all transfers, please email with your name and the bank you sent your donation through. This will help us ensure that your donation is received and placed into the correct account.
