Hatakeyama Culture Foundation was established in 1960 by Issey Hatakeyama, the founder of EBARA CORPORATION to support the research, dissemination and promotion of science and technology, and scholarship programs to develop education and academics.
Through these activities, the Foundation promotes industrial prosperity and broad cultural progress. Since its establishment, the Foundation has given various subsidies every year to promote science and technology and improve a wide range of cultures. In the early part of the 21st century, there are a number of significant issues that must be solved as the environment surrounding us is facing a critical turning point. A well-balanced promotion of science and technology, and culture is essential for solving these issues in addition to sustainable development of society and culture where we can achieve true prosperity. Under the circumstances, we believe that the role of the Foundation will become more and more important, and it will continue to offer better support activities.
Your continued support and cooperation for the Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

Major activities continued since the establishment of the Foundation
1. Supporting dissemination and promotion of academics, and science and technology and public and private organizations and facilities engaged in those areas
- Providing grants for the "JSME Hatakeyama Award" of The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME)
- The JSME has been presenting the "JSME Hatakeyama award" as a nonprofit activity funded by grants from the Foundation since 1960. Every year, mechanical engineering departments and related departments of public and private colleges, universities, and junior colleges in Japan nominate graduates who have superior character and achieved academic excellence (one person from each department; about 350 students in total). The award makes an honorable recognition of their efforts by giving them a diploma and extra prize.
- Providing grants for "Hatakeyama Issey Award" of Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation (JⅢ)
- JⅢ has been presenting the "Hatakeyama Issey Award" as a nonprofit activity funded by grants from the Foundation since 1967. Grants from the EBARA CORPORATION were also added in 1981. The National Commendation for Invention organized by JⅢ every year commends persons who have produced the most excellent invention by giving a symbolic award supported by an imperial donation from the royal family. This activity provides a diploma and financial incentives for their inventions as the "Hatakeyama Issey Award" to honorably recognize their achievements.
2. Supporting public and private organizations, groups and individuals engaging in academic and science and technological research
- Providing grants for the "Hatakeyama Issey Research Grant" of Turbomachinery Society of Japan (TSJ)
- TSJ has been presenting the "Hatakeyama Issey Research Grant" funded by grants from the Foundation every year since 1990. This activity provides a diploma and grant to a research activity chosen from the public every year. The scope is research activities related to fluid machinery or fluid engineering in which the researcher is 40 years old or older and works for a public or private college, university, junior college, or research institute in Japan or an extremely outstanding education activity for the following generations.
- Providing grants in accordance with the subsidy program of Hatakeyama Culture Foundation
- Every year since 1960, the Foundation has been providing grants to researchers who belong to Japanese universities and research institutes and individuals or groups who are deemed to have academic knowledge in the field for their research. Currently, the Foundation is providing a total of six grants in principle to those who are selected from the public from three target fields: (1) the wind and hydraulic power and fluid machinery, (2) the environment, energy and biomass and (3) the semiconductor manufacturing equipment and processes.
3. Supporting students through scholarship associations and schools

- KI has been granting the "Hatakeyama Scholarship" as a nonprofit activity since 1960 funded by grants from the Foundation. This activity provides scholarships to students (a total of two students, in principle) who are from Ishikawa or Toyama prefectures and a science major in a college or university in the Tokyo metropolitan area. In addition, we established the "Hatakeyama Scholarship Award (Ikusei sho)" as a nonprofit activity in 2006. Two graduates who have made excellent achievements in academic, sports or social action programs are selected every year among those who stayed in the "Student Dormitory 'Meirin Gakkan'" and attended science university or college. This activity honors such graduates by giving them a diploma and extra prize.
