Kyoto scholarships available to HS seniors

The nonprofit Kyoto Symposium Organization and The San Diego Foundation are seeking applications for the 2010-11 Kyoto Scholarships from high school seniors in San Diego County and the greater Tijuana area.

Named in honor of the Kyoto Prize — Japan’s highest private award for global achievement — the scholarships recognize area students who have demonstrated outstanding community service, scholastic achievement and a desire to pursue the betterment of society through their studies.

Six students will receive Kyoto Scholarships of up to $10,000 each in the categories of the Kyoto Prize: Advanced Technology, Basic Sciences, and Arts and Philosophy. Two recipients will be named in each category — one from San Diego, and one from greater Tijuana.

Scholarship recipients will be recognized, and will meet the latest Kyoto Prize laureates, during the gala event “The Kyoto Prize: Celebrating Outstanding Lifetime Achievement” on April 20. The benefit gala will serve as the distinguished opening ceremony for the ninth annual Kyoto Prize Symposium, which will continue April 21-22 at San Diego State University, UCSD and the University of San Diego.
