Little Tokyo Rotary Club to offer scholarships: Deadline set for May 31

The Little Tokyo Foundation, a part of the Rotary Club of Little Tokyo, is offering $1,000 scholarships to the youth. This new scholarship is for those who have overcome adversity and are making significant accomplishments or contributions in one of the four areas: academics, sports, culture or volunteer service.

This is to recognize and award the courageous effort by the youth to overcome physical or psychological challenges, serious sickness, or loss of parent(s).

The applicants must be 16-24 years old and live in the Los Angeles area.  The Rotary family members are not eligible.  Upon application review and face-to-face interview, one or two youth will be awarded $1,000 each.

Send applications via e-mail to  by 11:59 pm on May 31, 2019.

For more information, please contact us via above e-mail, call Makiko Nakasone at (818)523-2866 or visit

This scholarship was made possible because of the generous donation by Toshio and Toshiko Handa, who have long supported the youth.  After living in Pasadena for more than 40 years, the Handas recently moved back to their home country and now live in Tokyo.
