Program Overview

The scholarship program of the Asahi Glass Foundation began as a project of the Asahi Glass Scholarship Foundation (AGSF) established in 1957. Since then, the AGSF provided scholarships to superior Japanese students who are in need of economic assistance. In addition, the international students in Japan became eligible in 1990 and, in 2012, its target was expanded to the high school students who were affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The Asahi Glass Foundation received the program on March 1, 2018 due to the merger with the AGSF.
