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,
