Establishment of the SEI Group CSR Foundation
We have established a fund for providing monetary support for certain activities, such as monetary contributions to university courses, grants-in-aid for scientific research initiatives, and offering scholarships.
Since 2010, we have invited applications for the program to provide monetary contributions to university courses and to support scientific research initiatives. Out of the many applications, we have carefully selected and offered endowments and grants to university courses that are significant for the solution of key challenges in the modern era - environmental issues, the food crisis, and the aging of society. The research initiatives selected were programs engaged in basic science research that requires research funds and exploratory research conducted by young researchers. Scholarships are granted to universities in Japan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam.
