ATTENTION OAA MEMBERS!
The Uchinaa Junior Study Program (formerly the Junior Study Tour) is an annual immersion program that brings 20 middle and high school students to the islands of Okinawa.
Sponsored by the Okinawa Prefectural Government, elected students are given an all-expense-paid trip to study Okinawan history, culture, society, and diaspora, with an emphasis on nature, peace, and identity. Students will also be given the opportunity to interact with Uchinaanchu from around the world as well as students from Okinawa, with the hope that bonds and understandings will develop between overseas Uchinaanchu and their mother island.
TOUR DATES: July 24 ~ August 8, 2016
APPLICATION DEADLINE: APRIL 1, 2016 (FRIDAY)
It may be delivered in person, mailed, or emailed, but it MUST be in the office by 4:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time)
