A potentially cost effective alternative to paying school fees, tuition and the Japanese individual income taxes on these educational benefits.
The Contribution Program is a special corporate scholarship program that is available for organizations that are responsible for covering expatriate employees’ educational expenses. Instead of paying tuition and applicable fees, companies agree to make donations to the school. The donations are used partly to fund special corporate
scholarships, which are awarded to dependents of participating companies.
Under an authorized agreement, which was established in 1978, with Japan’s National
Tax Administration Agency, scholarships funded under the Contribution Program are not
taxable as personal income in Japan. Thus corporations avoid the grossing up tax impact
on these educational benefits. The precise tax savings are contingent on salary level and
A company’s participation in the Contribution Program is one of the factors considered
in ASIJ admissions decisions.
A further advantage is that by participating in the Contribution Program, corporations
generate additional income for the school at no additional cost to the company. This
supplemental income helps to ensure the continuing excellence of the ASIJ program
The high quality of an ASIJ education can, in large part, be directly attributed to the
special support the school has received through this Corporate Scholarship Program.
If you are considering participating in the Program and would like a listing of the companies which currently support the school through this program, please contact our Corporate Contributions Manager, Reyna Tamura at email@example.com or call 0422-34-5300 ext 707.
Please note that parents or their employers that are considering participation in the Contribution Program are required to pay all tuition and fees on schedule. If there is a subsequent decision to participate, tuition and applicable fees that have already been paid will be refunded.
