What's MNCC Scholarship?
The fundraising for this scholarship was made possible by MNCC students with the great support of American host families and teacher coordinators since the summer of 2000.
We are delighted to announce that we will invite American students to Japan as “American Ambassadors”. We hope this scholarship will help them learn Japanese culture and customs by experiencing Japanese school life and staying with the Japanese host families.
Thank you letter from scholarship students (2011-2012)
I appreciate all of the students and families who helped to raise money for the MNCC scholarship program that sent me and four other American students to live in and go to school in Japan for two weeks. It is a great program and I will never forget the experiences that I had while living in Japan. I want to help with future fundraising so more students can go to Japan. - Derek Hines-Mohrman, Olympia, Washington, USA

Thank you students for fundraising and doing all the other things you did to earn money for the American students (like me) to go to Japan. I had a great experience! I’m so glad I went. I met so many new people and made so many new friends. Everyone was so nice over there and I adored my host family! They were so nice and funny! Thank you for raising enough money for me to have a life changing adventure! Also thank you American host families who helped the students by getting them to school every day, and by helping them raise funds, and also by purchasing the products and services being offered in the fundraisers. Thank you for supporting me! - Katie Nugent, Los Banos, California, USA
