Our Condolences to People of Chile

On February 27, 2010, an extremely strong earthquake struck the mid region of Chile. We at the Tokyo Foundation, and especially the Scholarship Division, would like to convey our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the people of Chile who have lost their lives or their loved ones through this immense tragedy.

The Tokyo Foundation has been providing scholarships to graduate students at the University of Chile through the Sylff Program since 2002 with the aim of nurturing leaders in diverse fields. In view of the gravity of the situation, the Tokyo Foundation would like to call out to Sylff fellows around the globe for proposals concerning aid activities for the victims using the “Sylff Leadership Initiatives”. We are eager to support your proposals as much as possible, with hopes for a speedy recovery of the people of Chile.
