The Ichiro Shirato Fund for Japanese Language Study
In honor of Ichiro Shirato, one of Columbia’s finest teachers of Japanese, the Donald Keene Center of Japanese Culture established in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures an endowed fund bearing his name. The Shirato Fund provides supplemental support for Japanese language study and teaching. For 2012-2013 the Shirato Fund provides fellowships for the study of the Japanese language during the summer of 2013. We are deeply grateful for specific support to maintain and grow the Shirato Fund. For more information about the fund click here.
