Mondale Dinner Award & Scholarship Gala

To further the Japan-Minnesota Partnership, JASM holds the Mondale Award and Scholarship Dinner every Fall. At this gala event, the Mondale Award for Japan-Minnesota Partnership and Mondale Scholarships are presented. The Mondale Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the building of understanding, cooperation and respect between the people of Japan and Minnesota. The Mondale Scholarship is awarded to undergraduate students enrolled in Minnesota colleges and universities who want to broaden their knowledge of Japan through a combination of study and travel. These awards are intended to both recognize and encourage the continued efforts to build a bridge between Japan and Minnesota. Proceeds benefit the merit-based Mondale Scholarship Fund; every year the Fund supports two or more Minnesota undergraduates studying in Japan.
