February 15, 2020
SJSF calls for applications for its yearly exchange grant.
The objectives of the Scandinavia-Japan Sasakawa Foundation are to enhance friendly relations between the five Nordic countries and Japan and to promote exchange between the peoples of the countries concerned, to increase international understanding and to attain peace in the world.
The Foundation fulfills its objectives by providing grants and scholarships to organizations, institutions and individuals in the Nordic countries and Japan. The aim is to promote research, development, education and training mainly within medicine, the humanities, social and natural sciences and technology.
The Foundation was established in 1985 by a donation from the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation, today renamed The Nippon Foundation, which is chartered by the Japanese Government.
Today, assets managed by the SJSF amount to approximately 400 MSEK. During the period 1986 – 2017 close to 6,600 scholarships and grants – equivalent to MSEK 280 – have been awarded to recipients in the Nordic countries and Japan.
