Aichi Gakusen College had its start in 1912 when a school was established with the original goal of providing women with a good educational background as well as career training. The College is ranked among the earliest twenty of such women's schools in Japan. Since the beginning, the objectives of the College have remained the same: to encourage young women to develop fully their potential and abilities, thus become contributing members of society. In the 1999/2000 academic year, the College became co-educational.
The Aichi Gakusen Scholarship is a prestigious award designed to assist students in studying abroad in Japan. Each year, this scholarship awards three students $2,500.00 to attend Aichi Gakusen College in Okazaki for one semester (early April – late July). The Aichi Exchange Committee hopes to encourage students who are intellectually curious and are interested in expanding their knowledge of the Japanese culture and language.
The Aichi Gakusen Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to students who demonstrate a combination of strong academic achievement and interest in experiential learning overseas. Students are selected from all faculties across Capilano University with the program designed to recognize and address the unique challenges that students face in securing international educational experience.
The scholarship competition is open to ALL Capilano University students interested in studying abroad in Japan.
