Providing Financial Assistance for Education

Hanwa Scholarship Program Overview

Hanwa Scholarship Program, a public interest incorporated foundation, was established in April 1957 to commemorate our tenth anniversary.
Jiro Kita, our founder and the first president of the foundation, had himself had a hard time working his way through school and wished to provide assistance to help students financially to foster human resources that will benefit the nation. He dedicated 10 million yen to establish the foundation when the capital of the company was only 100 million yen.
In FY2015, a bursary program for international study was introduced, and approximately one million yen is granted for one year of study. In FY2021, the bursary program was extended to students in Japan, and 30 thousand yen per month of financial assistance is being paid to 20 specified universities. Because these are both bursaries, they do not need to be repaid. We are thus seeking to establish financial assistance programs that meet the needs of the times.
