This year, one Master of Public Health (MPH) student and seven Special Program in Japanese and Eurasian Studies (SPJES) students, who enrolled in 2022, were awarded master’s degrees.

The Best Paper Awards for this term were given to Ms. Badiyeva Aizada from MPH for her paper “Association between hospital admissions due to acute myocardial infarction and meteorological parameters in Kazakhstan” and Ms. Davronova Farangis from SPJES for her paper “Digital Activism in Tajikistan: Gender Advocacy of Youth on Social Media.” Both students were presented with a commemorative ornament by Professor Usuyama, the NipCA project leader.

With the knowledge and skills gained during their studies at the University of Tsukuba, and the congratulations of their NipCA supervisors, the fellows are now well-equipped to serve as a bridge between Japan and the rest of the world.
