From UTokyo to the World: Supporting Students Abroad

The Go Global Scholarship Fund (Supporting Students at the University of Tokyo to Study Abroad and Gain International Experience)

The Go Global Scholarship Fund is a scholarship program that provides financial support for students from the University of Tokyo who wish to challenge themselves by taking advantage of overseas opportunities such as short-term study abroad programs of approximately two weeks and mid- to long-term study abroad programs of up to one year (e.g., exchange programs). Your support will be used to cover program participation fees as well as provide scholarships for participating students (primarily undergraduate students).

Message from the Executive Vice President and Director General of the Division for Global Campus Initiatives, The University of Tokyo

In September 2021, the University of Tokyo unveiled UTokyo Compass, its basic policy as to the philosophy and direction that the University should be pursuing. This entailed the formulation of twenty goals and action plans, one of which is to emphasize “education that nurtures an international outlook” and to improve the international mobility of our students. Our goal is to foster the next generation of graduates by imparting them with a wealth of experience in engaging with diverse value systems, an international outlook, and a capacity for empathy.

Studying abroad, which among other things involves experiencing different ways of life, meeting new people, learning a foreign language, and even discovering interesting research topics, is truly a life-changing experience for students. It is essential that we put in place an environment that contributes to the promotion of studying abroad as an opportunity for students to step out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves in various ways. Although UTokyo is working to improve this system from a variety of angles, a growing need to enhance financial support so that students need not give up on opportunities to study abroad for financial reasons has become particularly apparent. One such measure is the Go Global Scholarship Fund that has been set up by the University.

Your support will be invaluable in helping us foster as many students as possible by imparting them with the ability to contribute proactively to the creation of a future society with an eye to contemporary global issues. We would like to ask for your support for the University of Tokyo's Go Global Scholarship Fund in the hopes that the next generation of young people will have every opportunity to set out into the world.
