Disability Scholarship 2018
CRCC Asia, in partnership with the British Council and StudentUniverse, is delighted to be able to offer 1 scholarship for an internship with the British Council in Tokyo, Japan. The scholarship is designed specifically for students with a disability, bringing the experience to those who may not previously have had an opportunity to live and work in Japan.

The successful applicants will undertake a business placement at the British Council, in Tokyo between October and November 2018. The interns will live in the centre of each city and work for one month, gaining transferable business skills and hands-on experience whilst working in an international setting.
Jessica Stubbs, a previous Disability Scholarship Winner, explains:
“I believe that experiences such as mine whilst on the program are especially important because all too often there are numerous barriers – both physical and societal – in the UK that hinder disabled people. Giving more disabled people the opportunity to do internships such as mine means, over time, the wider society will come to regard seeing disabled people in all areas of life completely normal .”
The successful applicant will be awarded a scholarship based on their overall application, their response to three short essay questions and an academic reference.
Applications close on Friday 30th August 2018.
We are very happy to announce that the CRCC Asia Disability Scholarship in partnership with the British Council is back!
This is a comprehensive scholarship that includes:
- Full support from CRCC Asia, both pre-departure and on-the-ground in Tokyo
- Accommodation for the duration of the internship
- Return flights to Tokyo, generously provided by StudentUniverse
- an internship placement at the British Council office in Tokyo and a stipend to cover living costs whilst on placement.
Join us on one of our incredible international internships in Tokyo, Japan’s energetic capital city. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of a global powerhouse of business and innovation.
From fashion to technology, Tokyo has long been at the cutting edge of innovation. Take a stroll through Ueno Zoo, find manga in Akihabara, or walk the famous crossing of Shibuya.
