Message from Prof. Hisashi Miyagawa, Director, Kyoto University

Dear President Gian Yi-Hsen,

Thank you very much for inviting the members of Kyoto University to the JUGAS 50th Anniversary Awards Ceremony on December 19. I extend my sincere congratulations on the JUGAS 50th anniversary and to the three winners of the award, Mr. Tan Jong Lek, Mr. Richard Chua and Mr. Jimmy Ng Hon Yuen, who have made a great contribution to the association for years.

I would also like to thank you for your kind cooperation on the Kyoto University International Undergraduate Program (Kyoto iUP) and special offer of the joint scholarship, “Kyoto iUP, Kyoto University - JUGAS Supplementary Scholarship”. I am sure that our collaboration will greatly promote international exchanges in the fields of study, research and culture between Singapore and Japan. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you ever require any additional information or assistance with regards to Kyoto iUP.

I look forward to welcoming bright students in Singapore to Kyoto University in the near future.

Yours Sincerely,

Prof. Hisashi Miyagawa
