 This fellowship program is named after the word, "phoenix," which has important meanings to Hiroshima University. First, the phoenix is a sacred bird from Egyptian mythology that after living for 500 years, set itself on fire within its nest and rose renewed from the ashes. The immortal bird is a symbol of Hiroshima University, which was reborn out of the ashes of Hiroshima City after it was laid to ruin by the atomic bomb. Second, the phoenix is also a genus of palm plant whose leaf is on the school's emblem as a graphic representation of "renewed life."
