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 2019, the foundation provided scholarships to 45 graduate students (including overseas students) and 12 students in specialized courses at colleges of technology. So far, 639 scholarship students have been supported, and we continued to focus on calling for scholarship applicants from schools in areas affected by the Kumamoto Earthquakes.

 In the Philippines, students often have no choice but to discontinue their education, regardless of their academic ability, due to financial reasons. Even if they are fortunate enough to graduate, they often face a very challenging employment environment. As a result, large numbers of graduating students and others go abroad to find work. In light of these conditions,
UPI started a scholarship program in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018. We have provided scholarship support to four students in total.
