Japan Day 2013

• Applied to the Alumni Foundation in February 2013
• Awarded £500

Japan Day is organised by the University of Sheffield Japan Society – one of the biggest and most active Group imageJapanese Societies in the UK. Japan Society is for students of any nationality and any degree who share an interest in Japan and Japanese culture to come together and have fun.

The non-profit event showcases Japanese culture and entertainment, and introduces the students and the community of Sheffield to the enticing culture of festivals in Japan.

The Japan Day committee applied to the Alumni Foundation in 2013 for a contribution to go towards the costs of the event. The £500 that was awarded helped support the event in a variety of ways. The event was a huge success, and in 2014 the Alumni Foundation awarded another £500 to go towards Japan Day 2014 after the society submitted another good application.
