Scholarships and bursaries in Canada

In 1984, MCC issued an apology, on behalf of Canadian Mennonites, to Canadian Japanese for abuse they suffered during World War II. This scholarship is a symbol of cooperation between the two groups.

The $3,000 scholarship funds research on the protection of minority and human rights in Canada in order to reduce the potential for abuse of cultural minorities.

The National Association of Japanese Canadians and Mennonite Central Committee Canada co-sponsor the scholarship.
