This year, Ehime AJET formed the Ehime AJET Scholarship Committee to create a scholarship for 200,000 yen to provide one high school student in the prefecture an opportunity to study abroad this summer. The committee will evaluate applications based on academic merit, interest in cross-cultural exchange, and financial need.
The application process has two components: a written application and an interview. The written application requires the applicant’s background information, preferred study abroad program, school activity involvement, and a letter of recommendation. The interview provides an opportunity for the applicant to demonstrate his or her English speaking ability, to express motivations for studying abroad, and to share his or her hopes for the future. Any high school student in Ehime is eligible to apply.
The submission deadline for the 2015 Ehime AJET Scholarship is Friday, February 20th. The recipient will be chosen by the Ehime AJET Scholarship Committee.
Being an assistant language teacher of English in Japan affords an opportunity to positively influence students’ academic experience, development, and achievement. The Ehime AJET Scholarship Committee encourages students to speak and learn English in a foreign country; to interact with students of different ethnicities, races, and cultures; and to understand the concept of being a global citizen.
If you have any questions about the scholarship, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you to everyone who came all the way to Niihama’s token beach at the Marine Park on Saturday! The annual AJET beach party was a lot of fun, with antics involving (but not limited to) some intense flip cup games, a not-so-intense game of beer pong, frisbee, s`mores, a mass after-dark swim, fireworks, and a drone (yes, really). After concerns that the approaching typhoon would cause the event to be cancelled, I’m glad that we were all able to make it to the beach for what will probably be the last barbecue of the year. A HUGE otsukare to everyone who also made it to school sports days on the Sunday! Thanks guys, hope you had a good time! Keep tuned for the next event in AJET event in Toyo, and join us to conquer Mt Ishizuchi next month.

We held our first Ehime AJET booth at International Shimanami Kaido Cycling EXPO in Imabari on October 25th through 26th! Since it was late October, we decided to decorate the booth in a Halloween theme. We prepared international quiz games, face paint, sold packaged candy and homemade sweets which we spent all night buying, packaging and making them (brownies and rice krispies)!
There were a stage with performances by jazz bands, Jpop bands, junior high school bands, Japanese entertainer talk show hosts, DJ and other performers.
Thank you to those who came to support and help us! Otsukare to those who participated in the actual cycling!
Special thanks to Mr. Murakami and Mbali Sexwale for giving us the opportunity to participate in this festive event! For more information on the Shimanami Kaido Cyling EXPO in Imabari check out their website http://cycling-shimanami.jp/index.php.

A massive thank you to everyone who came last night! I had the best time sharing my culture with you all and watching you dance! I hope you enjoyed yourselves too. Thanks to you all, we managed to raise a whopping 85,000円 last night! We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you!
We have now reached our initial goal of 150,000円, but we plan to continue fundraising to help cover as many costs as possible for the lucky Ehime high school student.
