Each year, both JACL Cleveland , and the Cleveland Japanese American Foundation award scholarships for college to deserving graduating high school seniors of Japanese descent.  In 2018, three scholarships were awarded totaling $3000.  Amounts may vary each year. 

These scholarships are "no strings attached" in that the money can be used in any way to help with the many expenses of college.

Scholarships will be  awarded at the Community Picnic held this year on August 11, 2019 at Furnace Run in the Akron Metroparks.  We honor all high school graduates of Japanese descent.  

Questions regarding the scholarships can be directed to Bill Sadataki at 330-659-3880
