The Robin Furuta Memorial Scholarship Award was founded in the fall of 2015 after Robin’s passing after her battle with cancer. A group of friends and family created this award as an ongoing memorial to Robin, what she gave and what she meant to the Japanese American Community Graduation Program.
A. Creative Expressive Work Relating to the Japanese American Community
- The creative expressive work can be in any artistic form. Short essays or poetry should be printed legibly or typewritten. If your work is in the form of visual or musical art or an oral presentation, submit a photograph, tape, CD or DVD. No personal interviews will be scheduled.
- All expressive works must be labeled as original or else must properly name the original source. All work will become the property of the scholarship committee and will not be returned unless special arrangements are made.
- Provide a brief description of expressive work and its relationship to the Japanese American community.
B. Completed Application
C. Official High School Transcript
The expressive work is the major criteria because of Robin’s love of the Arts and her love for the community.
Should the judging committee find it difficult to decide upon the recipient of the award, your school records and a list of school and community activities and awards will be used in the final decision.
