The Nippon Foundation Scholarship Program for Evacuees from Ukraine

KAI participates in the Nippon Foundation’s Japanese Language School Scholarship for evacuees from Ukraine. We have already accepted five of them since last year and provided them with Japanese language education.
We hope that the Nippon Foundation’s new scholarship program will provide opportunities for Japanese language education to evacuees from Ukraine who are seriously interested in learning Japanese for their future.

KAI’s Admission Requirements

  • Meet the requirements for a scholarship from the Nippon Foundation.
  • Able to communicate in English.
  • Participate in face-to-face classes at KAI Japanese Language School.
  • Feel comfortable with a class format based on the use of ICT (tablets).

If you meet these requirements, you can apply to KAI’s General Course. The earliest start is this year’s spring term (April 10, 2023). However, availability is limited, so please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to attend.

KAI can offer you the followings.

  • You can take the General Course for free for up to two years until you find a job. (Attendance rate of at least 80% is required.)
  • Students can start at an introductory level of Japanese.
  • The school is equipped with an ICT classroom environment, and a tablet terminal (an iPad) will be lent free of charge.
  • Students can also study business Japanese in advanced classes.
  • Ukrainian evacuees who have been studying in KAI since last May will support you as mentors.
  • You can consult with us about your life, study, and career path.
  • Career counselors are available to discuss employment opportunities.
  • More than 2/3 of our students are from non-Kanji speaking countries such as Europeans and Americans, so even those who are not familiar with Kanji will be able to smoothly progress in their studies.

Track Record

KAI Japanese Language School (KAI) is one of the founding members of JSUS (Japanese Supports for Ukrainian Students) and has been supporting evacuees from Ukraine since last March. Since last May, we have accepted five Ukrainian evacuees to our General Course free of charge. One has already found a job, and the other four are still taking the course and improving their Japanese language skills.

If you want to master Japanese and find a job in Japan, we will support you. Please feel free to contact us.
