Kyoto scholarship deadline approaching

Scholarship awards of up to $10,000 are available to San Diego City and County high school seniors attending public, private and parochial schools through the auspices of the Kyoto Prize Symposium Scholarships, the San Diego County Foundation and the Inamori Foundation of Kyoto, Japan. The deadline for submitting applications is Jan. 10.

The scholarships, based on merit and community service, are given to graduating students who aspire to use their studies and work to improve society — a concept consistent with the philosophy of the Kyoto Prize. Students are required to write an essay about one of the latest Kyoto Prize laureates, who this year are Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, chosen from the field of medical research and technology; Dr. Laszlo Lovasz, mathematics, and William Kentridge, visual arts.

Winners will be recognized April 4 at the Opening Ceremony and Gala of the 10th annual Kyoto Prize Symposium and, along with other students, will be invited to attend the Laureate presentations at three area universities: Dr. Yamanaka, advanced technology, April 5 at SDSU; Dr. Lovasz, basic science, April 5 at UCSD, and Kentridge, arts and philosophy, April 6 at USD.

Applications forms for the scholarship awards are available at kyotoprize.org.
