Each school year we are proud to offer opportunities for students to win financial support through the Institute. This year, we have three opportunities: The Philip Jacob Peace Memorial Award for undergraduate and graduate students at any UH campus; and the Nobumoto Tanahashi Peace Scholarship Award for undergraduate students and Nobumoto Tanahashi Peace Fellowship for doctoral students, both for students at UH Mānoa.
This award was established in memory of Professor Philip E. Jacob (1914-1985), who devoted his personal and academic life to the search for peace and intercultural understanding. Dr. Jacob pioneered a new diplomacy of cross-national collaborative research with fellow scientists from East, West, North, and South. Through this achievement, Dr. Jacob is credited for joining minds and resources across barriers of ideology and politics in a common exploration of how to better the human condition.
These awards were established in memory of Reverend Nobumoto Tanahashi (1906-1996), founder of the Heiwa Kyokai (Order of Peace Congregation), a school of Shintoism that is committed to peace. The Reverend Tanahashi was an independent Japanese businessman who made the cause of world peace his personal mission.
