Sumitomo Corporation Scholarship Program in the Sultanate of Oman
Sumitomo Corporation supports Omani students studying at graduate schools in Japan with the aim of helping to develop human resources that will sustain the future of Oman.
Sumitomo Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation Middle East FZE have launched, through the Sumitomo Corporation Muscat Liaison Office , the Sumitomo Corporation Scholarship Program in the Sultanate of Oman in 2019 and have since been supporting Omani students studying at graduate schools in Japan.
Under this Program, Sumitomo Corporation Middle East provides Omani students studying at Japanese graduate schools with tuition and living expenses for two years plus round-trip travel expenses. Additionally, Sumitomo Corporation supports students in selecting a graduate school in Japan, taking entrance examinations and completing admission procedures to give enthusiastic students the opportunity to study in Japan.
It is hoped that Omani students who will study in Japan for two years will come to understand Japan through their studies and interactions with the local community, will nurture personal friendships, and will become lifelong bridges of international friendship between the two countries. In the first year we supported two students and will continue to support several students annually afterwards.
