The Waseda Fund — for a future where Waseda students shine!

Intended to achieve a “Waseda that shines on the global stage,” The Waseda Fund was created in the hopes of offering financial support to Waseda University and providing education that enables future students to develop into truly remarkable people.

 

In line with Waseda University’s guiding principles of “Waseda Research,” “Waseda Education,” and “Waseda Engagement,” we have pressed forward in revolutionizing education and research so that all students can have a global outlook and contribute to their local community, their country, and even international society in their future careers. The Waseda Fund allows us to accelerate these efforts and connects the sentiments of our many supporters to the next generation, with the central aim of developing even more extensive research and education activities as well as fostering the development of students who will contribute to global society.

 

Donations from supporters will be carefully maintained as capital to operate this fund, and the operational profit will be used in a meaningful way for significant education and research projects carried out by Waseda University. In order to develop Waseda University even further, we humbly ask that you support The Waseda Fund.

Aiji Tanaka, President, Waseda University
