Travel scholarships are granted to qualified Japanese-English speaking candidates to help defray the cost of attending the Career Forum. If selected, you will receive a travel scholarship amount based on where you reside at the time of the Career Forum. Scholarship availability is limited but many candidates have attended our Career Forums regardless of scholarships and have received job offers. Please read carefully the information below before applying.

Agreement to the "Travel Scholarship Statement" below
Application deadlines are divided into 3 separate rounds. Even if you were not selected for the first round, you will automatically be considered for the second round. Therefore, if you apply early on, you will have up to 3 chances to be awarded the travel scholarship. Please note that you will not be able to modify or re-submit your application.
First round: June 24th 23:59 (US PST)
Second round: August 19th 23:59 (US PST)
Third round: September 20th 23:59 (US PST)
CFN will only contact candidates who have been selected as travel scholarship recipients. Candidates who did not receive an email notification within 3 days after the date of the deadline were unfortunately not selected for that round. Given the availability of many career opportunities at the Career Forum, we strongly encourage you to attend even without the scholarship.
The travel scholarship will be awarded in the form of a check after 3:00PM on the second day of the Career Forum. For security reasons, under no circumstances can we award the scholarship before or after the Career Forum.
To collect, you must bring:
notification email of selection (as a print out or via mobile device)
proof of participation on both days (via CFN App or My CFN)
valid ID (ex. driver's license, student ID or passport)
proof of current address (ex: driver’s license, utility bill, cell phone bill, etc.)
* Other forms of compensation, such as accommodation, may be awarded in place of a check.
