JETAANC established a university scholarship award in 2002, for high school seniors who are headed to an accredited college or university. The JETAANC scholarship is open to students within JETAANC’s geographic area, namely Nevada and the 48 northernmost Californian counties. This excludes San Luis Obispo, Kern, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, and Imperial counties. Applicants do not need to be students of Japanese language, but must be able to demonstrate a sustained interest in Japan or Japanese culture.
The JETAANC Scholarship honors one high school senior each year that has demonstrated a genuine interest in Japan with a non-renewable $2,000* academic scholarship. JETAANC requires that the recipient be accepted to an accredited 2- or 4-year college in the fall semester after receiving the award and be a resident of one of the Northern California or Nevada counties that the JETAANC serves.
The JETAANC Scholarship Committee will evaluate applicants based on their demonstrated interest in Japan, academic accomplishments and interests, recommendations, and responses to questions contained in the application. A demonstrated financial need may also be taken into consideration. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
