A junior Language & International Trade-Japanese major, Chloe Finley, received the AIG Bridging Scholarship for her study abroad at Sophia University in Tokyo this year. Eighty-eight undergraduate students from colleges and universities across the United States were named recipients of Bridging Scholarships for Study Abroad in Japan. The winners receive awards of $2,500 to assist with their expenses while they study in Japan.
The Japan-US Friendship Commission, an independent federal agency promoting mutual understanding between the United States and Japan, initiated the Bridging Project scholarship program to promote study abroad in Japan by larger numbers of American undergraduate students. The scholarship program is administered by the American Association of Teachers of Japanese, which promotes education in Japanese language, literature, and culture.
Congratulations to Chloe!
