Sasakawa Nursing Fellow Scholarship Launched to Nurture 100 Nurses with Global Perspective [2022/05/11]
The Nippon Foundation and its partner organization, the Sasakawa Health Foundation, have launched the Sasakawa Nursing Fellow Scholarship to support 100 Japanese graduate students over the next 10 years, who gain admission to topnotch nursing universities in the United State and Canada.

The 2.8 billion-yen (about $21.5 million) program is aimed at nurturing nurses with a global perspective and leadership skills who can contribute to the future of community healthcare in a post-COVID-19 Japan.

In order to qualify for the scholarship, applicants are first required to enroll in the Sasakawa Nursing Fellow Program, which features online lectures and monthly reporting requirements. They will also have periodic meetings with reviewers to fully understand the objective, mission and the responsibilities of this scholarship program.

Within the first three years of being accepted into the nursing fellow program, grantees must obtain admission to any of the prestigious universities in North America which are ranked among the world’s top 10 in the fields of public health, nursing, and health science which includes life sciences and medicine, epidemiology, and population movements.

The program will award nursing students a scholarship of up to 13.2 million yen (about $101,000) a year, including tuition, rent, insurance, travel expenses for one round trip to Japan, and living expenses (100,000 yen or about $766 a month), for two years for a master’s degree student and three years for a doctoral student.

Today, it is important that nurses have a good awareness and understanding of issues relating to social justice, human rights, affirmative action and resource allocation.

Raising their competence to tackle these issues enables nurses to practice ethical nursing and contributes to improving the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations locally, nationally, and globally.

In addition, nurses must immerse themselves in diverse cultures, which will help them understand how to respect different opinions and how to be leaders. Through this opportunity, fellows cultivate their ability to incorporate scientific methods into a practical setting.

These are grants, not student loans, so they do not need to be repaid. I sincerely hope that the Sasakawa nursing fellows will deepen their knowledge, enhance their critical-thinking skills and develop their policy-making abilities through graduate studies at prestigious universities in the United States and Canada, and afterwards integrate what they have studied into their work to contribute to society, find solutions to social injustice and stand up to adversity.
