    After finishing med school, I decided to pursue a career as a doctor in Japan. The lengthy and complex process required to obtain the necessary qualifications presents a challenge I could not have faced on my own. The Akebono Foundation has provided me with invaluable assistance at every stage, even before coming to Japan: researching schools and academic programs, purchasing textbooks and offering much-needed advice. Upon arriving in Japan, their continued support ensures a comfortable environment, allowing me to focus on my studies. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone to apply.

    Akebono Scholarship

    The Akebono Scholarship was established to foster talented individuals who are eager to learn in Japan. We provide scholarships to those who want to come to Japan but are unable to do so due to financial reasons and support their life in Japan. After their studies in Japan, we hope that they will become a bridge to Japan in the future and that they will be able to build international human networks with other scholarship recipients through the medium of Japan.
