One of the main objectives of the American Association of Japanese University Women (AAJUW) is to assist the advancement of women through education. In order to achieve this goal, the AAJUW has been offering scholarships to outstanding female college students each year since the organization was founded in 1970. The fund for scholarships is raised by the members conducting various activities (see Activity Section for details) and donations from individuals and organizations supporting our goals. The amount of scholarship per recipient is $2,000 for 2012.
