The Hiroshima Kenjinkai Scholarship Program seeks applicants

Hiroshima Kenjinkai of Southern California (HKSC) announced its 2022 scholarship program in August. At the end of September, however, it was noted that applications were coming in slower than expected.

Therefore, the Kenjinkai is now endeavoring to encourage its members to urge qualified individuals within their family circle, if any, to apply for the HKSC scholarship program in 2022. Five selected candidates will be recognized at the assembly Kenjinkai’s Annual General Meeting held concurrently with its New Year’s Event at the end of January 2023. Each of the selected ones will receive $750 as well as a certificate.

The application deadline is December 10. Program details and the application form are available either at the Anzen Hardware store in Little Tokyo (309 E. 1st St., Los Angeles) or by contacting the chair of the scholarship committee, Dr. Charles Igawa, by phone, (562) 818-7857, or by email at [email protected] before December 1.

Applicants must be members of the HKSC organization or current family of HKSC members. Membership for 2022 can be obtained at any time of the year by registering and paying the membership fee of $10 per year per family. Grandparent membership, however, would not qualify grandchildren.
