  • Akira and Sharlie Miura Memorial Scholarship for Japanese and ESL Studies – The scholarship has been created in memory of Professor Akira Miura, a professor with the department for 32 years in Japanese pedagogy, and his wife Sharlie Miura, who was a dedicated English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor at Madison College. This Fund will be used to provide an annual scholarship to an undergraduate student, with a preference for an underrepresented student when possible, who is studying Japanese or ESL in the Departments of Asian Languages and Cultures and English respectively.
