The SJCC Scholarship Fund is guided by the general objective of encouraging and supporting young residents of Switzerland in their efforts to acquire a thorough knowledge of Japan, its culture, language, economy, social and business environments.
In a broad sense, the scholarship program thus contributes to the needs of Swiss and/or international enterprises for qualified employees with “Japan/Asia competence” as well as to a further development of bilateral trade and cultural relations between Switzerland and Japan.
Good reasons to contribute:
- The economic presence of our country in Japan is significant, i.e. an estimated CHF 20 billion in local sales by Swiss companies – close to 3 times our exports to this 2nd largest country market after the US with yet a considerably higher potential for our innovative and strategically orientated companies.
- Companies seeking to strengthen their Japan knowledge and/or engagement can take advantage of the growing pool of young and talented professionals with solid Japan experience.
- SJCC considers its Scholarship Program as one of the pillars of its activities because it can provide tangible benefits to its members and the business community at large.
