Two JASCers will study in Japan this Spring as Bridging Scholars. Kimberly Julien, JASC 63 & 64 (2011 & 2012) and Alexander Evans, JASC 63 (2011), both of Villanova University, join 18 other students around the country in receiving the prestigious scholarship.
The US-Japan Bridging Foundation awards scholarships to U.S. undergraduate students to study for one semester or academic year in Japan. The Foundation aims to expand the opportunities for study abroad in Japan to help prepare America’s young people to assume future global leadership roles. Since 1999, 1275 scholarships have been awarded by the US-Japan Bridging Foundation to students studying abroad in Japan.
Applications will be accepted in April 2013 for the next group of Bridging Scholarships, for study in Japan beginning in Fall 2013.
