Establishing Calsonic Kansei Next Generation Scholarship as Part of Saitama Window to the World Scholarships

Calsonic Kansei Corporation (President & CEO: Hiroshi Moriya; Headquarters: Kita-ku, Saitama City) supports development of globally competitive personnel from Saitama Prefecture through overseas studies through the Calsonic Kansei Next Generation Scholarship, which will form part of the Saitama Window to the World Scholarships under Saitama International Association's newly established Saitama Fund for Active Global Talent.

"Supporting the next generation" is one of the pillars of Calsonic Kansei's social contributions, with many activities being conducted to develop future talent.
