SCS Faculty: Okawa Research Grant
The Okawa Foundation for Information and Telecommunications is an authorized non-profit organization that was established in Japan in 1986 to provide funding for and give recognition to new studies in the information and telecommunications fields, to conduct surveys, analyses and collection of information, and to nurture human resources. The Foundation was established by the late Mr. Isao Okawa, founder of CSK Corporation, with an endowment fund of five billion yen consisting of donations by Mr. Okawa, CSK group companies, and others. The Foundation's outstanding achievements have since led to the Japanese government approving it as a designated public benefit organization.
The Okawa Foundation continues to promote an array of activities for the public good internationally, with the objective of helping to form a thriving and prosperous advanced information society in the twenty-first century world.
