  1. CRCC Asia & AHEAD – Students with Disabilities Scholarships
  2. CRCC Asia & KAHAL Abroad – Scholarship for Jewish Students
  3. CRCC Asia’s Symone D Sanders Scholarship for Black Communities
  4. CRCC Asia – Indigenous Communities Scholarship

However, if you meet the eligibility requirements and have a genuine need, CRCC Asia will accept applications from motivated individuals, regardless of whether you fall into one of the above mentioned categories or not.

According to Hannah Dang, a University of Michigan student who took part in the internship in Tokyo 2018, “Interning in Tokyo with the help of CRCC Asia has been an incredible experience that cannot be missed. The full support from the CRCC Asia team has made this international internship easier and more enjoyable. This internship definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to explore the limits of nature by exceeding expectations. I was able to demonstrate my intellectual ambitions – as a consultant, a data analyst, a market researcher – with the opportunities this internship has presented to me. I have gained so much from this trip: resilience, self-confidence, cultural understanding, and transferable skills. It has been a steep and thrilling learning curve and definitely a major step towards fulfilling my career aspirations. Working in a global environment has been a challenging yet rewarding experience and will definitely give me a competitive edge in today’s job market”.

Applications are now open and will close on Saturday, December 1st at 5:59AM Eastern Standard Time! Finalists will be interviewed in the first few weeks of December, and the scholarship winners will be announced on Friday, December 21st!
