The Grew Bancroft Foundation provides 4-year undergraduate scholarships to Japanese students attending U.S. liberal arts colleges. The Foundation is named for Joseph C. Grew, U.S. Ambassador to Japan (1932-42), and Edgar A. Bancroft, U.S. Ambassador to Japan (1924-25). Over the past 90 years, more than 200 scholars have graduated from prestigious colleges, and 36 students are currently enrolled.
The Grew Bancroft Foundation announced the Sutematsu Scholarship, initiated by Akiko Kuno, great-granddaughter of Sutematsu Oyama and a trustee of the Grew Bancroft Foundation. It is designed to promote women leaders at leading liberal arts colleges in the US.
