Do you remember the t-shirt design contest I entered for Nara AJET (association of JETs)? They have a great scholarship program going for students to study abroad in an English speaking country! I think this is wonderful opportunity for students to experience a new culture and really push their language skills. From the Nara AJET organization: “For the last seven years, Nara AJET has provided 1 to 2 scholarships of up to 100,000 yen per year to students who wish to study abroad in English speaking countries. Our amazing JET community here in Nara has generously funded all of the Scholarships that we’ve awarded thus far….
One of our past recipients wrote us a letter about his time in Australia, where he stayed with a host family: ‘I had wonderful days in Australia. I came into contact with Australian culture. I learned a lot of things. For example, Australian people treasures water and animals. I visited two World Heritages. They were the Great Barrier Reef and Kuranda tropical rainforest. The best memory is my host family. I was able to communicate with them in English. It is a very meaningful thing for me. I go to other countries and want to learn English and culture. Thank you very much, Raimu’ ”
