2020年度ウチナージュニアスタディー事業中止のお知らせ 2020 Uchina Junior Study Program:Notification of the Cancellation


In December of 2019 we announced applications (recommendations) for the 2020 Uchina Junior Study Program. However, due to the spread of Novel Corona Virus within Japan and across the globe, we deeply regret to announce its cancellation. 


The reasons of cancellation are as follows:

1 海外からの参加者の受入に関して、移動ルートが多岐にわたる上、引率者もいないことから、若年層の参加者の受入に係るリスクが高い。

1. For the acceptance of participants from overseas, in addition to their being a large variety of travel routes, there are no chaperones, as such there is a high risk in the reception of youth participants.


Further, at the start and the end of the program, due to countries entry and exit suspensions, it is predicted that travel will become very difficult. Specifically, if participants are unable to return to their home country, they would rely on their host families for place to stay within the prefecture and the extension of that stay for a long period of time would be difficult.

2 本事業の9月以降の延期も検討したが、国により学校等のスケジュールが異なり、調整が難しいことに加え、県内および県外の学生募集についても、事業の実施期間が2週間と長期にわたり、夏休み期間以外での実施が困難である。

2. While postponement of the program until September was discussed, in addition to the difficulty of coordination due to how school schedules differ per country, due to the two week length of the program, for participants from within Okinawa prefecture, carrying out the program during any period other than summer vacation would be difficult.

Following the containment of the Novel Corona Virus, we plan to restart the Uchina Junior Study Program from the 2021 year on, and would humbly ask for your continued cooperation.
