Scholarship fund supports Japanese students​​​​​​​

Bielefeld/Nagoya. Supporting Japanese students from the earthquake-affected region is the aim of the newly set up “DMG/MORI SEIKI Scholarship Fund“. The two cooperation partners have signed a corresponding agreement with the Institute of National Colleges of Technology (INCT) in Nagoya. The total amount of the fund is € 2.6 million (JPY 300 million). Over the next ten years, financial assistance will be offered specifically to students at the INCT who are studying machine building/engineering and who have been directly affected by the earthquake that shook the east of Japan in March. The fund will take account of both current and future students who come from the areas that have suffered destruction around Tohoku and the northern Kanto regions. Some 50 students will be given financial assistance every year. The students will not be required to reimburse money received from the fund. By providing scholarships, both companies want to provide those affected with specific assistance and at the same time support machine and plant construction in Japan.
