About the Sasakawa Fellowship Program
The Sasakawa Peace Foundation (Ocean Policy Research Institute) and the marine affairs associated groups led by The Nippon Foundation have provided a scholarship fund since 1987 to recipients entitled to study at the WMU who are mainly from the Asian Pacific region. The recipients are more than 550 as of September 2016. After graduating from the WMU the students on scholarship take important posts at their own governments and educational institutions, where they energetically lead maritime affairs. On the other hand, the OPRI structures a network among the graduates to support their exchange activities in order to promote them even after graduating from the WMU to be familiar with the latest international maritime information and to actively discuss the information of each country. Friends of WMU, Japan (Secretariat Office is at the OPRI) is organized as a group, which performs the maritime human resource training, such as the above students' and support the network activities.
