USHIO Group Support for Culture and Learning

The USHIO Foundation

The USHIO Foundation was established in 1994 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the founding of USHIO. As globalization progresses, the foundation will contribute to society by assisting the development of the next generation of human resources, including overseas students, who will be responsible for leading the world in the future, and promote further interaction and mutual understanding between Japan and other countries.

In fiscal 2016, the foundation provided scholarships to 43 graduate students (including overseas students) and 12 students in specialized courses at colleges of technology. So far, 518 scholarship students have been supported, and we continued to focus on calling for scholarship applicants from schools in areas affected by the Kumamoto Earthquakes.
