Support for Nagoya University

Nagoya University Foundation

The Nagoya University Foundation was set up in 2006 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the University (2009).
The Foundation was established with the philosophy to build a stable basis to maintain and further revitalize the good traditions of Nagoya University, to create a vibrant academic and research environment at the University, and to develop courageous intellectuals who would lead society in the 21st century. Under the current situation, in which environments surrounding global universities and societies are rapidly and drastically changing, Nagoya University has continued to adhere to this philosophy and a number of our students have enjoyed the benefits from kind donations from all supporters.
Since its establishment, our Foundation has also had a principle that the donations given to the main fund of the Foundation shall be accumulated as a stable fund for the future and only the investment profit from the fund shall be used for scholarship support projects, international exchange projects, and young researcher grants without reducing the principal amounts. We are planning to widen the range of fields that are supported by donations.
