Invest in the Future

Sakura Foundation Scholarships acknowledge high school seniors who have made meaningful contributions to the Tri-State / Denver Buddhist Temple and/or Japanese American community. The Foundation hopes the success of the recipients will support efforts to play an impactful role in the temple and Japanese American community in the future.

The scholarship fund is administered by the Japanese American Community Graduation Program (JACGP). Eligibility requirements and application can be found at www.jacgp.com.

Sakura Foundation presents its scholarships at the Annual Japanese American Community Graduation Program banquet each June. Please see www.jacgp.com for more information and banquet details.
