【Purpose of SGU subsidy】
Waseda University, with its “concept of Waseda goes global”, was selected for the “Top Global University project (TGU) Project” of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in 2014, promoting “fostering global leaders” and “promotion of ingenious research”. With the TGU project, as part of our “fostering of global leaders,” we support our students to study overseas taking valuable programs, and also to take online programs by overseas universities under the current situation of COVID-19. Since the subsidy is to come from the TGU project and WSC donations, we would appreciate if you could cooperate in further activities to promote the TGU or WSC project.
