Are you a student involved in the Salem Ota Cultural Exchange?
Perhaps you and your family hosted a Japanese student?
Perhaps you traveled with us to Japan?
If so, consider applying for the Salem Ota Cultural Exchange Scholarship! Fill out the application and submit an essay describing the impact of these experiences.
We provide up to one $500 scholarship per year to a graduating high school senior who will attend an accredited college.
The Scholarship committee has historically been comprised of Salem Ota members who are also members of the local educational community e.g. teachers. Note: If applicants are related to club members, those club members will not serve on the committee.
The Salem Ota Cultural Exchange reserves the right to forego the scholarship in the event no meritorious application is received. All submissions become the property of The Salem Ota Cultural Exchange and may be used in promotional materials.
Application for the 2023 Scholarship can be found here!
