The Okazaki Scholarship Defined
The Okazaki Scholarship fund will be used to help AJJF members attend the National Convention, who could not otherwise attend because of financial limitations. The scholarship may be used to pay for the cost of the complete convention package (clinics, banquet, T-shirt) or any portion thereof. An AJJF member is defined as someone who has been registered as an AJJF member with the AJJF Central Office for at least one month before filing a Scholarship application.
Each year the convention host in cooperation with the AJJF Convention Committee Chair will determine how much funding will be provided for this program from the convention budget. This amount will be used to help as many members as practicable attend the Convention. Additional funding may be obtained by donations from the membership or other supporters.
Eligible applicants will be determined by the Okazaki Scholarship Committee, based on the application information and Sensei recommendation. If more applicants apply than can be offered scholarships, the Okazaki Scholarship Committee will determine the recipients and amounts of the scholarship. Preference will be given to applicants who have not received this scholarship in the past. No more than two scholarships may be awarded to members of any one school.
A reminder of the application due date will be advertised to all AJJF members. To apply for an Okazaki Scholarship, please complete this application and return it to the AJJF Convention Host at least 45 days prior to the event. The applicant will receive notification of the application status 30 days prior to the event.
