Panasonic Scholarship Asia Panasonic Scholarship Asia

Panasonic created the Panasonic Scholarship program to honor its 80th anniversary in 1993, based on the idea that human beings are the ones who create a sustainable society. In FY2014, the Panasonic Scholarship Asia scholarship program took form.
Its predecessor, the Panasonic Scholarship, provided support for Asian students studying in Japan, but the Panasonic Scholarship Asia provides economic support to students studying at universities throughout the Asia region, as a form of community-based support for training the next generation. Group companies in Asia operate the program in accordance with the conditions in each country so as to support local students who are struggling to advance their education because of economic circumstances. Through these more locally based activities, the program is increasing the number of scholarship recipients.
