This year a second group of students will participate in the exchange program between the UH LIS Program and the University of Tsukuba. The following five students were selected to receive $1,000 scholarships from the Japanese government to help participate in the program.
These LIS students will observe major libraries and archives in Japan, including the National Diet Library, National Archives, Tokyo Metropolitan Library in December 2011. They will also give presentations to Tsukuba students and faculty.
In October, we hosted LIS student Yukako Mizukami, and Dr. Chieko Mizoue, Graduate Chair of the School of Library & Media Studies at the University of Tsukuba. Sending the five students to Tsukuba is part of our cultural and academic exchange initiative.
The University of Tsukuba is Japan’s largest LIS Program in a national university. At one time it was the National University of Library and Information Science before merging with the University of Tsukuba, which is one of Japan’s leading scientific research institutions.
In fall of 2012, Dr. Andrew Wertheimer will be a visiting researcher /professor at the University of Tsukuba. We hope this further develops this partnership between our programs.
Congratulations to the following students, who will be receiving UH Achievement Scholarships in the spring. This competitive scholarship is based on merit, service, and academic achievement. To be eligible, a student must be a degree-seeking student in a master’s or doctoral program and have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above. The award is open to both residents and non-residents.
