Overseas Scholarship Foundation

Support for Local University and High School Students in Thailand and Indonesia

Asahi Glass marked its 25th year by establishing the Asahi Chemical Industries Support Association-predecessor of the Asahi Glass Foundation and, in its 50th year, the company established the Asahi Glass Scholarship Foundation. In honor of its 75th anniversary, and as a means to contribute something to communities in other countries than Japan, Asahi Glass created scholarship foundations in Thailand and Indonesia, where it has a long history of maintaining various large-scale operations with the investment of 100 million yen at that time.

Both the Asahi Glass Thailand Foundation and the Asahi Glass Indonesia Foundation were created primarily to assist students from those countries in coming to Japan to study. Since 1990, however, the Asahi Glass Scholarship Foundation has taken over this responsibility, allowing the Thailand and Indonesia foundations to devote themselves to supporting scholarship within their respective countries.
