Honoring the receivers of 2015 Tottori University Encourage Fund

Tottori University Encourage Fund

 On February 8, 2016, Encourage Fund honoring ceremony was held at the Public Relations Center of the University, and total 13 persons were honored from Faculty of Engineering and the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences. (10 persons from the Faculty of Medicine will be separately honored in Yonago area.)

 At the honoring ceremony, President Teshima encouraged the participants stating that “This fund is granted to students with excellent academic record and exceptional interpersonal skills. Going forward too, I would like you to conduct research and lead day-to-day life that would become a shining example for your colleagues and juniors. Life of a researcher is hard. However, without comparing with others, the most important thing is the spirit of diligently producing results while maintaining a low profile. I would like you to continue researching in the earnest and diligent manner and become more and more active”.

 Students’ representative expressed gratitude and talked about how short is the remaining student life, and thanked everyone stating that the students would strive to work on conducting research and guiding the junior students.
