The Rotary Yoneyama Scholarship Program uses funds donated by mainly Rotarians across Japan to provide scholarships to overseas students who self-finance their educations in Japan. The program’s mission is to foster a large cadre of young people who, imbued with the Rotary spirit, will play active roles in international society while building bridges of understanding and cooperation between their countries and Japan.

We welcome donations from anyone anywhere.
If you are a taxpayer in Japan, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to the Foundation.
