Uniqlo to offer scholarships to Harvard

Starting in September 2015, a total of $1.2 million in fellowships will be awarded to six students - one annually per school - over the following three years. Students will be selected on the strength of their application and a series of interviews.

Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president, and chief executive of Uniqlo owner Fast Retailing, will personally donate a total of $600,000 over three years to fellowship recipients at GSD.

Uniqlo said the fellowship programme will provide world-class educational opportunities to promising individuals, regardless of their financial circumstances, to pursue careers as managers or designers.

Yanai added: "Innovation lies at the intersection of design and business management. I look forward to seeing talented young people from Japan transform their aspirations into reality on the global stage."

The final interviews will be conducted by Yanai and Professor Hirotaka Takeuchi of the Harvard Business School. Fast Retailing will offer fellowship recipients enrolment in its internship program while they are studying abroad.
