Konnichiwa! I'm Yukie Michelle Lloyd, the CPAS recipient from 2011 to 2013.
Receiving this prestigious scholarship was life-changing and it greatly enhanced my options for a successful career.
More Japanese and American students should know about this opportunity and be exposed to a diverse culture and a different education system in the early stages of their career. By reconnecting the CPAS alumni, we aim to create a structural association and further promote this distinguished scholarship.
Thank you for your warm support.
