■Financial Aid Offered by Ritsumeikan University

The AY 2018 Ritsumeikan University Financial Aid for Intercultural Exchange

An application period is scheduled to be held for the 2018 edition of the Ritsumeikan University Financial Aid for Intercultural Exchange.

The Ritsumeikan University Financial Aid for Intercultural Exchange offers financial assistance to individual Ritsumeikan University students, or RU student groups, to support extracurricular activities where the objective is some form of international cultural exchange (exchange between peoples of different backgrounds and cultures). The fund was established with the objective of promoting international exchange in order to foster mutual understanding between the event participants of various backgrounds, to improve understanding of different cultures, and to develop a mindset of multicultural coexistence.
