Corporate & Foundation Giving
Partner with YFU USA and establish a Corporate or Foundation Scholarship Program!
Since 1975, YFU has offered the Corporate and Foundation Scholarship Program to attract student-direct funding for scholarships. Scholarship funding is a tangible and dynamic way for companies and foundations to build and strengthen employee and community relations, while preparing a new generation for the global workplace. It is a priority for YFU USA to retain and expand our scholarship program which offers high school students the opportunity to get an international education.
Investing in scholarships through YFU provides a reality-based educational experience for students. International exchange provides students with a cross-cultural understanding
that increases communication skills, enhances self-confidence, expands foreign language proficiency, and fosters greater tolerance and international awareness.
YFU USA can design a program to meet the specific needs of any company or foundation. Whether a company provides funding for students from a particular community or high school, or for dependents of employees, investing in tomorrow’s leaders is an ideal way to provide support for today’s youth.
"Under the impeccable and caring stewardship by YFU, Mitsui USA has
been proudly sending our employees’ children and students from our local
communities as ‘YFU/Mitsui USA Student Ambassadors’ to Japan since 1981.
Our belief is that American teenagers grow immeasurably from their home
stay experiences, which is attested by their parents remarking that their sons and daughters return filled with a new sense of honor, diligence, humility, and
independence—and lifelong ties with their new families in Japan." --Shinichi Hirabayashi
