It was year 2002 when the JCI
Philippines has opened talks with the Japan Information and
from the Japanese Government which agreed our organization to
participate in its prestigious “Young Leaders’ Program (YLP). Since
then every year JCI Philippines has been sending a representative to
avail said scholarship program.
The “Young Leaders’
Program” (YLP) is a prominent student scholarship program totally
funded by the Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho: Ministry of
Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology), which aims to
contribute to the fostering of future national leaders in Asia and
other countries. While deepening the participants’ understanding
about Japan, it also helps form a network among national leaders,
contributing to the establishment of friendly relationships and
improved policy planning between Asia and other countries.
essentially offers scholarships to foreign students who wish to
study in the prestigious Hitotsubashi Unversity, Graduate School of
International Corporate Strategy (ICS) as YLP students in business
administration annually under the Japanese Government Program. As
applicants from more than 14 countries are vying for a maximum of 15
slots in the program, needless to say, interested parties will be
undergoing a highly competitive screening procedure.
With this program,
JCI Philippines is yearly opening this application to all the
members of chapters or LOMs in good standing who may be interested
to participate. Each LOM is
encouraged to nominate one (1) candidate. JCI Philippines will have
a paper screening of all application forms before these names are to
be submitted to the Japanese Embassy for final selection.
To date there are
already several graduates on this program like, JG Puzon of JCI San
Juan, JCI Mem. Rommel Dumlao (JCI Surigao Nickel), JCI Mem. Lavi
Penaverde and JCI Mem. Marie Murillo (JCI Perlas Pasay), JCI Mem.
