People who come to Japan on Sakura Science Plan and take part in the exchange program will be certified as members of the Sakura Science Club, the alumni association of the Sakura Science Plan.

Sakura Science Club provides members with useful information on the website, and alumni meetings are held in various places so that club members continue to be active as a bridge between Japan and their home country. In addition, members are connected by SNS on the website and interact freely. By November 2018, the club has over 24,000 members and has become a huge network.

Sakura Science Club website and SNS is here.

So far, the meetings for SSC members were held as shown on the right. Not only the reunion with friends and host organization staff who interacted with each other during the program, but also they met new friends and new exchanges have started at the meetings. And it became very exciting every time.
