Uchina Junior Study Project
Application for 2021 is closed!
We are now accepting applications for the Uchina Junior Study and Uchina Youth Leadership Development program in 2021.
Due to COVID-19, the program will be held in an ONLINE format this year. The program is for high school/ middle school students and youth leaders. The group of the participants will be selected BOTH applicants from Japan (mainly from Okinawa Prefecture) and from that of Okinawan descent in other countries. The participants will discuss Okinawan migrants, do introductory presentations on their home countries/regions, deepen understanding of Okinawan culture, and strengthen their bonds as Uchinānchu.
