The prestigious Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund scholarships are funded by the Nippon Foundation and administrated by the Tokyo Foundation.

The Sylff program is to provide selected students with the opportunity to take advantage of the various benefits offered by Sylff membership as well as a financial benefit.

The scholarships are offered to full time UNSW Business School PhD students with high potential for future leadership in international affairs, in public life and in private endeavours.
