Applications now being accepted for our SY22-23 Japanese Plus program

Deadline: September 24, 2022

for current information and application link.

We’re thrilled to finally be able to announce the return next fall of our free afterschool Japanese language, culture and career exposure program for DC public high school students.

It’s been a long wait, due to COVID, but we’re getting ready to come back with our popular Japanese Plus program next school year, thanks to a generous grant from the US-Japan Foundation. This is a fun but intensive program that meets twice a week throughout the school year – one weekday after school (possibly virtual) and Saturday mornings (and some Saturday afternoons). Students who will be 9th, 10th, or 11th graders next school year in either a DCPS or DC public charter school are eligible to apply. We will accept up to 20 students. Japanese Plus is a great program for students with a passion for Japan and an interest in possibly including Japan in their future college, career, and life plans.

We are beginning the student application process this summer. Any student with interest or possible interest in Japanese Plus should take the following steps.

1. Check out this Globalize DC:Japan website for more information on the program. Be sure to read some of our Student Blog. This should give you a good feel for the program and why students love it!

2. Fill out our Japanese Plus Student Interest Form. This way we’ll know who you are and will be able to invite you to any future online information sessions so that we can share more about the program, the application process, and answer any questions you may have. It’s a very quick form that shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes.

3. Be sure you check your email address for emails we send you. This will be our primary way of communicating with you!

4. We will hold our first online Japanese Plus Information Session on Tuesday, June 28 from 5:30-6:00 pm. Click HERE to join us. Anyone who fills out the Japanese Plus Student Interest Form will receive notice of future sessions.
