Hashi.org, a nonprofit focusing on education and cultural exchange, is accepting applications for its Study/Travel Scholarship. The deadline is August 15th, 2017. Each year, hashi.org awards three $1000 scholarships - one to a Japanese, one to a Korean, and one to an American. The second of three $1000 scholarships is being offered in 2017 for an American citizen interested in international cultural exchange opportunities with either South Korea or Japan. Decisions are based on the applicant's essay, which should clearly explain how the scholarship would be used, and how well the applicant’s intentions fit with hashi.org’s mission statement. The scholarships can be used for a variety of overseas programs such as those offered on www.hashi.org - including, but not limited to: home stays, student exchange, volunteering, work, etc.
