Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) is proud to announce a new scholarship program for continuing students.

The Noddin Scholarship for Continuing Students, donated by the family of Mr. Robert Noddin, will support academically successful but financially challenged continuing students by providing 5,000 USD (approximately 480,000 JPY) per student to supplement tuition. Mr. Noddin, President & Chief Executive Officer of AIG Japan Holdings KK, is a strong supporter of TUJ and has been a member of TUJ’s Board of Overseers since 2010.

The Noddin Scholarship will be awarded to ten students each year for the next three years and will be a very important supplement to the 120-140 merit-based scholarships already awarded annually to assist students to continue their study at TUJ. TUJ will increase each of the Noddin Scholarships with matching funds to make the total equal to the 9-credit tuition (558,000 yen in 2012/13).

TUJ also awards scholarships and grants to new incoming students, including the 4-year full scholarship supported by The Goldman Sachs Mochida Scholars Fund. With the addition of the Noddin Scholarship, TUJ’s total annual scholarship fund now reaches 58 million yen.

TUJ continues to enhance its scholarship programs through sponsorships from individuals, corporations and other entities that support its mission to educate global talent through international liberal arts education.
