Y-E-S Admin Support:


Honda have started the Y-E-S Award program for fostering future leaders in the field of science and technology. Following the start-up of the award program in Vietnam in 2006, in India in 2007 and in Laos and Cambodia in 2008, it was introduced in Myanmar in 2014 to support the development and promotion of young leaders to spearhead the growth of these countries in the future. 
This system grants awards to students who have excelled in the area of science and technology and who continue to aspire to higher academic achievement. However, it is distinctive in that it is not restricted to tuition but may be used for a broad range of activities. Furthermore, the grant is awarded in two stages. Another very unique characteristic of the system is that its details are matched to the receiving country's needs and circumstances; it is set up to be flexible to each country's needs. 

The program hopes to promote dissemination of ecotechnology among the young generations and at the same time to strengthen interaction and exchange between Japanese youths and young people expect to lead science, technology and industry in their respective countries.


The Honda Y-E-S Award program is being offered to students studying in the fifth semester of select 4-year B.Tech. or 5-year dual degree (M.Tech) programs at affiliated Indian Institutes of Technology and aggregate CGPA over & above 7.00 by the end of semester lV.

Selection Process for Y-E-S Award 

Awardees will be selected in the following manner: 

  • Y-E-S Administration Office (YAO) collects all applications;
  • Y-E-S Award Selection Committee (ASC) scores applications and essays;
  • ASC interviews shortlisted candidates;
  • The Japanese HOF Grant Committee (HCG) examines the finalist list and decides awardees.

Selection Process for “Y-E-S Award Plus”
There will be no separate selection process for the Y-E-S Award Plus. Any Y-E-S Award recipient who meets the conditions above may request this award, and their requests are received and confirmed by the YAO, and then approved by the Honda Foundation Y-E-S Office (“HOF Y-E-S Office”) in Tokyo.
