The 1970’s


Toyota’s key principles are “Respect for People” and “Continuous Improvement.”  We hope that through Toyota’s partnership with Youth For Understanding, students, families and communities around the world have gained deeper respect for people and a clearer vision for challenging themselves to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of those around them.

Toyota recognizes that today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. This scholarship program is an effective way of contributing to international understanding among our future leaders.
