* Osaka University Foundation for the Future

Osaka University Foundation for the Future  was established in May 2009 in order to build a financial foundation to continuously promote education, research, social contribution, and international exchange at Osaka University. Since its foundation, many alumni, local communities, and businesses have supported it. Based on the belief that its funds are designed to support students, Osaka University has started this new scholarship. Osaka University Foundation for the Future will continue to support research activities and student life.


On a similar note, readers may be interested to note that in 2005, Osaka University announced the Osaka University General Education Curriculum Scholarship for second-year students. Similar to the above, this scholarship grants 200,000 to 250,000 yen per year to some 50 students who have achieved an excellent record in the liberal arts.
