Mombusho Scholars Association of India (MOSAI)

All India Japanese Language Speech Contest

Indian scholars who had been to Japan for higher study and research on Monbukagakusho Scholarships initially formed an alumni association. Subsequently its membership was extended to all Indians with higher study/research experience in Japan and in 1986 MOSAI was registered as a non-profit voluntary organisation under the Societies Registration Act of Delhi to promote Indo-Japan cooperation. Its membership is only for those with at least one year of continuous study or research experience in Japan. Some members are specialists in areas Social Sciences, Science & Technology, Language, Literature, Public administration, etc. occupying important positions in universities, research institutions, industry and government.

The annual activities of MOSAI are:
