ICU Peace Bell Scholarship

The Peace Bell Scholarship was started in 2008 through alumni gifts. As of Septmber 2015, 100 students were granted the scholarship. In total, ICU has received pledges for approximately ¥502 million from over 1,000 donors. Even as the scholarship becomes stronger, the majority of gifts have come primarily from ICU's earliest alumni, those from the classes of 1957 to 1966. ICU hopes younger generations will follow this new tradition in serving to "pass the torch" of the program.

Artificial Turf Fundraising Campaign

Installation of artificial turf on ICU's athletic field was completed in April 2013. From planning to expenditure, the project took over two years, with ICU and the alumni working together to provide funding. As of January 2016, pledges exceeding ¥38.9 million have been received from 436 donors. Among these were many first-time donors and gifts were received from various quarters to support this project's clear objectives.

Sakura Replanting Project

The road fondly known to the ICU community as Kassoro (runway) that runs from the front gate to the University Chapel is called MacLean Avenue in memory of Reverend John Allan MacLean who contributed to the founding of ICU. The first class planted seedlings that have grown into majestic trees that form a magnificent cherry blossom tunnel along the avenue in the spring. But after 60 years, these trees have aged, losing their vigor. The lifespan of the Somei Yoshino variety is known to be 100 years at most. In 2013 we had to cut down five cherry trees for safety reasons, as their branches fell off and the trees were in danger of falling over. Since the trees are continuing to wear out, we have established the Sakura Replanting Project and the Sakura Fund for donations to this Project.

Continuing Support After Tohoku Earthquake

ICU has offered exemptions for tuition and various fees for students affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. Although recovery for the area has been proceeding gradually, various difficulties linger. In light of this, ICU continues to offer exemptions for these students in the 2015 academic year.
