Travel Scholarship

Travel scholarships are granted to qualified Japanese-English speaking candidates to help defray the cost of attending the Career Forum. If selected, you will receive a travel scholarship amount based on where you reside at the time of the Career Forum. Scholarship availability is limited, but in the past many candidates who did not receive a scholarship came to the Career Forum and successfully landed a job. Therefore, we recommend that you make your travel plans in advance rather than waiting first for a response. Please read carefully the information below before applying.

  • Important Notice
    CFN will only contact candidates who have been selected as travel scholarship recipients. Candidates who do not receive an email notification via My CFN Inbox by November 1st, 2016 were, unfortunately, not selected for this year's scholarship. Given the availability of many career opportunities at the Career Forum, we strongly encourage you to attend even without the scholarship.

    The travel scholarship will be awarded in the form of a check after 2:00PM on the second day of the Career Forum and after 10:00AM on the third day. For security reasons, under no circumstances can we award the scholarship before or after the Career Forum.

    To collect, you must bring:
    - your name badge
    - valid ID (ex. driver's license, student ID or passport)
    - proof of current address (ex: driver’s license, utility bill, cell phone bill, etc.)

    * Other forms of compensation, such as accommodation, may be awarded in place of a check.

  • Application Process
    The application for the Travel Scholarship has closed. The Boston Career Forum 2016 is a rare opportunity to meet with world-class companies all in one place.
