Each year, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan awards up to one million yen in scholarship funds to university students who have demonstrated a serious interest in journalism. The fund was originally established by former FCCJ member Swadish DeRoy and is now supported through generous donations from individuals and businesses dedicated to excellence in journalism.
Any current undergraduate or graduate student in Japan, or any Japanese student enrolled in an overseas journalism program, is eligible to apply.
Grand Prize: 300,000 yen; Second Prize: 200,000 yen; Third Prize: 100,000 yen. Additional prizes totaling a half million yen may be awarded at the discretion of the judges.
Details about the fund can be found on the FCCJ website at http://www.fccj.or.jp/scholarship
