$1,000 Gen and Kelly Tanabe Scholarship
The Gen and Kelly Tanabe Scholarship is a merit-based program that helps students fulfill their
dreams of a higher education. The scholarship is named for Gen and Kelly Tanabe, best-selling

       Legal resident of the U.S.
       Currently in school or planning to start school within the next 12 months.

About the Scholarship Program

       For many students the biggest obstacle to a higher education is money. The Gen and

The Gen and Kelly Tanabe Scholarship is a merit-based program which means financial need is
