As part of its efforts to promote diversity and inclusion, Kyoto University aims to create a university environment in which female students can fully demonstrate leadership and initiative in research activities.

The Women Scholar Challenge Project aims to encourage female students to build on their own curiosity and spirit of inquiry to explore the enjoyment of research and take on new challenges through interacting and collaborating with people who have diverse perspectives different from their own. Kyoto University supports students with such a challenging spirit.
