The Korean Scholarship Institute is a scholarship institution that supports fellow students studying in Japan and has a history of more than 120 years. In 1943, it was approved by the Japanese government as a “Korean Scholarship Foundation” for public utility.
There have been many changes with the passage of history, but in 1957, the board of directors was rebuilt as a united group of people living in Japan, transcending differences in affiliations, ideas, and beliefs. Since then, we have formed a board of directors and a board of councilors together with Japanese academic experts to promote the English education business for fellow students to this day. On August 1, 2012, the Foundation acquired public interest certification under the new public interest corporation system in Japan and transitioned to a public interest incorporated foundation.
The scholarship/">scholarships currently own buildings in Shinjuku (main building), Yoyogi (annex) and Osaka (Kansai scholarship building) in Tokyo, and the proceeds from these assets will be used by fellow students studying at high schools, universities and graduate schools in Japan. We are engaged in businesses such as providing scholarships. The scholarship society is operated under its own financial resources without receiving financial support from the Japanese government or the governments in the south and north of the home country.
This regulation is established based on Article 4 of the Korean Scholarship Foundation.
