Countermeasures for the Great East Japan Earthquake

JET Memorial Project

The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) will conduct a 5-year project (grant program) to commemorate two American JET participants – Ms. Taylor Anderson (from Virginia, worked in Ishinomaki city, Miyagi pref.) and Mr. Montgomery Dickson (from Alaska, worked in Rikuzen Takada city, Iwate pref.) who lost their lives during the Great East Japan Earthquake in Tohoku, Japan. This project aims to nurture future generation of Americans in Japan-U.S. relations, implemented at their alma maters of Randolph-Macon College and University of Alaska, Anchorage. CGP planned this project as a part of our programs to support Japan’s recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake, approved by the families of Ms. Taylor Anderson and Mr. Montgomery Dickson, and their alma maters.

In addition to the above endeavors, the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Kansai has also launched a 5-year project (starting from the fiscal year 2012) that provides an opportunity for selected U.S. high school students to receive intensive Japanese-language training and first-hand cultural experiences in Japan.  For more details, please visit here.
