Message from the President

The INOAC International Education and Scholarship Foundation was established in 1987 to support international students who want to study at Japanese universities and Japanese students who want to study at universities abroad.
We have supported students from various countries based on the conviction that in today’s increasingly globalized world, assisting in the education and bonds between young people who will drive the futures of Japan and other countries will lead to a brighter tomorrow. We are proud to see the scholarship recipients we supported playing active roles in various fields around the world.
Since the foundation was established, our work has been supported by the goodwill of many people. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of you for your kindness and ask for your continued guidance and support.
