Friendship gathering for scholarship students
The Sojitz Foundation was established in 1988 for the purpose of promoting international understanding by providing support for academic research, education and promoting international exchange activities. Since its establishment, the Foundation has provided grants and scholarship totaling approximately 800 million yen. Sojitz supports the Foundation's aims and continues to make contributions.
Grants are awarded in three major areas.

The second is scholarships for privately financed foreign students studying at universities in Japan.
The third is grants for various international exchanges and programs to promote understanding between Japan and the countries of the world.
