A group will award scholarships to 10 Ukrainian emigrants to Japan, allowing them to participate in Le Wagon Tokyo, an intensive coding boot camp.
The scholarships, offered by non-governmental organization Stand With Ukraine Japan, the apparel tech company Virtusize, and the investment firm Nextblue as part of the Japan-Ukraine Tech Bridge initiative, aims to help Ukrainians find work in Japan while addressing Japan's shortage of tech workers.
The program features nine weeks of programming instruction and a "career week" to ease graduates' transition into the workforce. "I have a dream that Japanese companies will hire Ukrainians coming to Japan and use this opportunity to get access to arguably the world's best tech market, return on investment-wise," said Virtusize's CEO Andreas Ueno-Olausson.
