Hashi.org Announces American Scholarship Winner!


8/27/16 – Hashi.org is proud to announce the winner of the 10th annual Travel Scholarship to an American citizen! This year, choosing one winner amongst the many outstanding applicants was very difficult. We received applications with essays describing a variety of backgrounds and aspirations. Semi-finalists included:

  • An exchange student in Japan working with AIESEC (world’s largest student placement program)
  • An aspiring exchange student that will be attending Sogang University in So. Korea
  • An exchange student at Waseda University in Japan hoping to pursue a career in translation and localization

As you can see, we are gratified with the ambition and accomplishments of our applicants this year, but none more so than this year’s scholarship winner, Jeranda Dennis.


This will be Jeranda’s first experience outside the country, and she will be the first college student in her family. She has been accepted at Kwansei Gakuin University, near Osaka, Japan, and will be a part of the School of International Studies program studying courses such as, Japanese Language, Comparative Cultural Studies, Minorities in Japanese Society, etc.

She hopes to use her experience and education in the bridging of misunderstanding between different cultures, at home, and abroad. While there, Jeranda aspires to work as an English teacher, and on her return, share her experience to inspire others to consider higher education and international studies as a way to broaden individual horizons and build those cultural bridges.  

Hashi.org is proud to award this $1,000 travel scholarship to Jeranda Dennis! Congratulations!

The Legacy of Cultural Exchange: Japan and U.S in the 1960s

Although much of the history of the collection has been lost over the years, it is thought to have been created as part of a cultural exchange organized by one or more local schools in both San José and Okayama, perhaps in celebration of an early anniversary of San José’s sister city friendship with Okayama.

While the history, and mystery, of the origins of the collection are compelling, it is the artwork itself that is utterly beguiling. Like a time capsule, these young artists have captured a moment in history, given us a glimpse of life in Japan in the early 1960s. Ranging in age from five to fifteen, they have left us with a deeply personal and richly expressive view of the world from a child’s perspective — what they find fascinating, frightening, perplexing, and familiar.

Hashi.org - Full Speed Ahead in 2016!




01/09/16  - It’s hard to believe that it’s now been 10 years since hashi.org was founded. And now, more than ever, dedicated to promoting cultural exchange opportunities between East Asia and America.

Each year, hashi.org awards three $1,000 scholarships – one to a Japanese, one to a Korean, and one to an American. We are grateful to now have been able to award 23 deserving recipients with these scholarships. They have been used for a variety of overseas programs, including home stays, student exchange, volunteering, work, etc.

Additionally, our website maintains a tri-lingual, searchable database of many of these cultural exchange opportunities in the U.S., Japan, and Korea.

We’re living in a time where there is continued widespread volatility in our world. And hashi.org strives to be one, small ‘bridge’ towards connectedness and peace. We invite you to explore this bridge with us – as a scholarship applicant, a traveler looking for a deeper experience in these countries, or with your tax-deductable donations towards our scholarships.

All the best in 2016,

Michael
