Cofounder, MEXT Scholars' Network Link: http://mextsn.org/ (under development) Japan (MEXT scholarship) has been funding hundreds of students from many countries for undergraduate/graduate and research programs. After coming to Japan in 2015, on a MEXT scholarship, I have interacted with the alumni and fellow students. The MEXT scholars all over the world have tremendous expertise, talent and experience. This huge talent pool would greatly benefit their respective countries, Japanese economy and industries. To solve this issue, we have established an organization called MEXT Scholars' Network, which aims to establish an independent global network of MEXT scholars, past and present, that strives to engage key personnel, organizations, and government institutions, so as to contribute back to the Japanese society. Our mission : 1. To encourage scholars and alumni alike to actively support one another within a community based on sharing personal and career experiences in Japan. 2. To engage scholars, businesses, and political stakeholders through an internationally-oriented platform of professional dialogue and social interactions. 3. To elevate the profile of the MEXT Scholarship and Japanese university education throughout the Asia-Pacific and worldwide. We have successfully partnered with companies and have hosted events to connect 200 MEXT scholars and alumni who are currently living in Tokyo. We plan to expand the operations all over the world.
