The Kubota Fund was established with this notion in 1984 by the late Yutaka Kubota, founder of Nippon Koei Co.,Ltd., who contributed the necessary funds from his own property. The aim of the Fund was to foster the growth of industrial technologies of less developed countries by financially assisting their potential leaders in various fields to get necessary education and training. The Fund has, since its establishment, helped many trainees and researchers from developing countries all over the world.
