Each spring, we notify principals and guidance counselors at high schools statewide about the Mitsui USA Foundation Scholarships in Tennessee Program. The Mitsui USA Foundation Scholarships in Tennessee Program supports the aspirations of globally-minded high school seniors from all across Tennessee.
The Mitsui USA Foundation Scholarships in Tennessee Program was established by Mitsui USA Foundation to provide educational opportunities to college-bound high school seniors and promote cross-cultural understanding between Japan and Tennessee. The Scholarship Program is administrated by the Japan-America Society of Tennessee.
Four $5,000 freshman-year scholarships are funded and awarded to successful applicants who plan to enroll in four-year Tennessee public colleges or universities - Austin Peay State University, East Tennessee State University, Middle Tennessee State University, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University, The University of Memphis - or within the University of Tennessee systems.
Applications will be due by May 31st. All applicants will be notified of final award decisions during the second week of July.
