In addition, the Gala helps introduce the recipients of the Kyoto Prize Scholarships, which were awarded to three students from San Diego County and three from greater Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Each student receives a college scholarship valued at up to $10,000 for the next academic year. Additional $1,000, $500 and $100 awards are made to more than 25 other students.
