The Tobitate! (Leap for Tomorrow) Study Abroad Program is a Japanese public-private partnership aimed at helping Japanese students study abroad. It was launched in 2014. The program plans to send approximately 10,000 high school and university students overseas throughout its seven years through to 2020. The desired result is for the students and supporting companies to form a globalized human resources development community and for the students to develop into globally minded professionals needed by society, especially industry, and who can succeed in a global world.
