Apply NOW for the Kizuna Project – an opportunity to visit Japan for 2 weeks!

The University of the South Pacific in partnership with the Government of Japan has launched the Kizuna (Bonds of Friendship) Project which will provide fully funded two-week study tours to Japan for high school and university students from 14 Pacific Island Countries (PICs).  The purpose of the Project is to build closer relations amongst the youth of Pacific Island Countries and Japan.  The Project also promotes the understanding about the recovery efforts after the earthquake and tsunami that occurred on March 11, 2011, and current situations in Japan. 

22 students will be carefully selected from each PIC.  The two-week programme of travel to Japan (about 10 nights in Japan) will take place between September to November 2012. 

Please find attached the brochure and application form for further information.
