About Honda Y-E-S Award

Opportunities for the growth of young scientists of the future

We started the Honda Y-E-S Award program to foster future leaders of science and technology fields in 2006 as a part of the Honda Foundation's 30th anniversary project. In the future, we are planning to expand the program to countries where human development is really needed.

This system grants awards to students who have excelled in the area of science and technology and who continue to aspire to higher academic achievement. However, it is distinctive in that it is not restricted to tuition but may be used for a broad range of activities. Furthermore, the grant is awarded in two stages. Another very unique characteristic of the system is that its details are matched to the receiving country's needs and circumstances; it is set up to be flexible to each country's needs.

The program hopes to promote dissemination of ecotechnology among the young generations and at the same time to strengthen interaction and exchange between Japanese youths and young people expect to lead science, technology and industry in their respective countries.
