Helping the youth of Asia to be the driving force in creating a future world of peace and prosperity.

Many overseas students studying in Japan come from Asia, and most pay for their studies themselves. A large number of students experience financial difficulties while studying in Japan due to much higher commodity prices, living costs, and tuition fees.

At the same time, Japan's prosperity and its very existence is to a large extent founded upon mutual understanding and harmony with other countries. Working together with the rest of Asia to promote exchange and human resources development is therefore extremely important for Japan.

It is with this in mind that the Kobayashi Foundation seeks to extend a helping hand to overseas students who come to Japan full of hopes and ambition, to enable them to concentrate fully on their studies so that they can return home to make a valuable contribution to the development of their countries.
