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 and will likely be increased for 2021.
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 Sunday August 8, 2021 at Furnace Run Shelter Akron MetroParks in Richfield Ohio We honor all high school graduates of Japanese descent.
