AJSV Scholarship Program 2012
In order to enable all eligible students the opportunity to apply, the Youth Exchange & Scholarship Sub-Committee has decided to extend the application deadline for the 2012 AJSV Youth Exchange Scholarship by one month to Tuesday, 31 July 2012.
For over thirty years, the Australia-Japan Society of Victoria has organised numerous exchange programs through its many partners in Japan. Students who have participated in such programs have been challenged to deepen their understanding of another culture, gaining an insight into different way of life, including the language, customs and people of Japan. The opportunity to attend a Japanese high school, live with a traditional family, and travel the length of the country has provided young Victorians with countless influential experiences, lifelong friendships, as well as proficiency in a foreign language.
In 2012, the Society is again offering Victorian secondary school students in years 9, 10 and 11 the opportunity to participate in an established exchange program funded by a scholarship from generous sponsors. Two years ago, a decision was made to work with schools offering Japanese as a second language to enable their own students to participate in an exchange program wholly organised by the school. Following the success of a pilot scheme in 2010 and a similar initiative in 2011, the Society is pleased to provide the same scholarship opportunity in 2012 for eligible students to partake in a memorable experience in Japan.
Members of the Society are kindly invited to speak to eligible students and parents/guardians about the scholarship program so that they may submit applications to the society by the closing date, Friday 29/06/2012. Please advise them to consult the attached list of eligibility criteria and application procedures before submitting the application form.
