The grant covers round trip air ticket, tuition, and monthly stipend.

Ambassador Toshiyuki Yamada had personally congratulated Seid during the pre-departure orientation conducted by the Embassy of Japan in Palau on January 25, 2018 to help her connect and seek advice about life and study in Japan.

Two recent Palauan Alumna of the Waseda University, Lalii Remengesau and Villiah Ngirmekur, also attended the dinner hosted by the Japanese Embassy on the same date and shared their experience to Seid.
