This scholarship 'Kuma Toshimi International Scholarship' was established in 1998 thanks to a gift from the Kuma Toshimi International Engineering Sciences Organization in honor of the founder of Seibu Giken Co., Ltd, late Dr. Toshimi Kuma.
Since its establishment, this scholarship has supported motivated international students of Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences at Kyushu University (KU-IGSES).
Every year recipients of the scholarship are invited to an award ceremony and give a research presentation as well as to interact with organization and the relatives of Mr.Toshimi Kuma.
Four years later since its establishment, the KUIGSES-Kuma Toshiimi International Scholarship Alumni Assocation was established on December 6th, 2012 to deepen the network among the alumni, the University, and the Organization and to support the University's mission of teaching, research, and service.
