The Shimonaka Memorial Foundation is the successor to the legacy of Yasaburo Shimonaka (1878 – 1961), who had many friends around the world, especially in India. In light of this, when the Foundation began providing educational grants and support overseas, it chose Indian students in Japan studying the Japanese language. The Foundation has also donated books to Indian schools, and supported school excursions to Japan.
Mr. Masayasu Ueno (1949 – 2013), an engineer who was engaged in laser research at NEC’s Central Research Laboratory, was preparing for a project to foster young researchers when he passed away by decease in mid-life.
The family of him donated a great deal of money to the Foundation’s India-related projects.
