The Alumni Organisation was founded in April 2002 in Zurich in order to provide former recipients of the Scholarship Fund with a platform to share experiences, expand the personal and professional network as well as keeping the Japan related knowledge up-to-date.

In September 2014, a portrait of three Alumni was published on the SJCC webpage.

Besides the activities in Switzerland, there is, since 2004, an Alumni in Japan who assists newly arrived SJCC scholarship recipients.

The main activities of the SJCC Alumni Organisation are:

  • The Annual General Meeting (around April)
  • SJCC Alumni & Friends Informal Gatherings
  • The bi-annual JapanGate (next edition in Autumn 2016)

Also the Alumni Association aspires to support the Scholarship Fund in raising funds to continue sending young talents from Switzerland to Japan to experience a challenging year of learning language, business and culture.
