In 1984, MCC issued an apology on behalf of Canadian Mennonites to Canadian Japanese for abuse suffered during World War II. This scholarship is a symbol of cooperation between the two groups.

The $2,000 scholarship funds research on the protection of minority and human rights in Canada in order to reduce the potential for abuse of cultural minorities.

The National Association of Japanese Canadians and Mennonite Central Committee Canada co-sponsor the scholarship.

  • Enrolled in a graduate program the fall of the following year
  • A Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or international student studying at a Canadian university in Canada
