Scholarship Awardee

The PSU Institute for Asian Studies is pleased to announce the recipient of this year's 2015-16 Institute for Asian Studies Scholarship Award.  


Double-majoring in Japanese Language and Business Marketing, Zachary Bradberry will be the first in his family to graduate with a university degree. An Institute for Asian Studies Scholarship award of $5,000 will support his study abroad at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, for the 2015-2016 academic year, where he plans to take intensive Japanese language and business courses. This is Zachary's first time studying abroad. This opportunity will allow Zachary to develop language skills and cultural experience, which he hopes to use in a future career in international business between Japan and North America. 



The Portland State Institute for Asian Studies Student Scholarship Award Program is made possible through a generous gift received in 2014,  with matching support from the Maybelle Clark MacDonald Fund.  The Institute for Asian Studies Student Scholarship is an annual competitive award of up to $5000 split between one to three qualified full-time, degree seeking, PSU students, who are pursuing an academic program at Portland State, or abroad, with a focus on Asia and/or Asian language studies, with selection priority given to students who are under-represented college students admitted to a PSU approved study abroad program in an Asian country.
