Request for Support

The University of Tokyo is actively working to strengthen its financial foundation through the transition towards an endowment-based financial management approach. This transition encompasses all individual departments, including the Graduate School of Economics. The Graduate School of Economics is independently enhancing its endowment with the goal of utilizing the generated returns for research and educational activities. We aim to create an environment that attracts exceptional researchers who can excel globally and improve educational facilities for students. 

Unless specified otherwise, your support will be primarily allocated to the endowment, and we will use it as a long-term source for research and educational activities.

We sincerely appreciate your generous donations and assure you that the Graduate School of Economics at the University of Tokyo will continue to disseminate outstanding research results globally and nurture the talents who will shape the future, thus contributing to society. We kindly ask for your warm support. 

Thank you very much. 

Taiji Furusawa
Dean, Graduate School of Economics
