Canadian Japanese Mennonite Scholarship

History and Purpose of the Scholarship

The scholarship was created as a tangible symbol of cooperation between Canadian Japanese and Canadian Mennonites, subsequent to a formal apology that was offered to Canadian Japanese, by MCC Canada on behalf of Canadian Mennonites.

It is intended to assist the protection of minority and human rights in Canada, and to reduce the potential for abuse of cultural minorities such as that suffered by Japanese Canadians during World War II.

The scholarship is co-sponsored by the National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC) and Mennonite Central Committee Canada (MCCC).

Congratulations to the 2013 winner Jill Bucklaschuk.
