The Mondale Award was created 25 years ago as a way to recognize individuals who walked in Amb. Mondale's footsteps in their outstanding achievements in continuing to build the bond between Japan and Minnesota. At the same time, the Mondale Scholarship was created to provide financial support for the students studying in Japan.
