Nakayama scholarship program

I would like to express my gratitude to the Japanese who established the Nakayama scholarship program. Apart from other donors who poured in money for tertiatry scholarships, I think Nakayama is exceptional in that the program is established specifically for students in secondary schools.

I know some collegues during my secondary school years who were very energetic & hard working students. Unfortunately they could not manage to further their education to tertiary level just because their parents or guardians did not afford their school fees.

I think the Nakayama scholarship if manage properly should provide opportunity for capable students from 'financially disadvantaged' families.
