> TO: Jackson School Graduates and Undergraduates
> SUBJECT: Japan-America Student Conference and Scholarship
> Program Application Deadline: March 1, 2003
> JSIS Scholarship Application Deadline: February 24, 2003
> The Japan-America Student Conference will convene this summer in
> Seattle and in Tokyo, Okinawa, Fukui, and Kyoto, Japan. We anticipate
> that a scholarship will be available to pay the conference fee for one
> Jackson School participant.
> The Japan-America Conference is a 69-year-old student-run educational and
> cultural program that enables about 35 American students to spend a month
> exchanging views with an equal number of Japanese students through
> discussions, workshops, lectures, and field trips. Both undergraduates
> and graduate students are welcome to apply; knowledge of Japanese,
> although desirable, is not required. You must be a full-time student, and
> U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is preferred.
> After an orientation at the University of Washington (begins July 22), the
> U.S. and Japan delegations will proceed to the National Olympics Center in
> Tokyo and from there to other Japanese destinations. The conference ends
> in Kyoto on August 21.
> This year's focus is "Civic Participation in a Globalizing Society."
> Among other activities, delegates will serve on a round table chosen from
> topics including business ethics, social activism, demographics of
> immigrant communities, domestic health, natural resources, gender issues,
> and scientific literacy.
> Any UW student may apply directly to the program. Different procedures
> apply, however, if you wish to be considered for the Jackson School
> scholarship. Instead of applying directly to JASC, scholarship applicants
> should submit their complete applications to the Office of Student
> Services no later than February 24, 2003. You must be a Jackson School
> graduate student, or a major in a Jackson School undergraduate program, to
> be eligible for the scholarship.
> It would be a good idea to get started soon: the application requires two
> brief essays, a writing sample, and two letters of recommendation.
> A limited number of application forms are available in Thomson 111, and
> materials also can be obtained by following the instructions in the JASC
> announcement below. You also are welcome to contact Benjamin Larson
> (bplarson at u) or Pamela Gard (pgard at u), Jackson School seniors who
> attended last year's conference, if you have any questions.
> ----NOTE: Award of the JSIS scholarship is contingent upon receipt of the
> required funds from the donor. Only those who are selected by JASC as
> Conference participants will be eligible for scholarship consideration.
