According to the current eligibility of the Deming Prize for Individuals, it can be said that this prize is basically targeted for the Japanese domestic candidates, as outstanding achievement and contributions in Japan are within the scope of examination. While non-Japanese individuals overseas have the slightest chance to fulfill this requirement for the prize, there is a greater necessity today to acknowledge contributions made by non-Japanese individuals as the Deming Prize has recognized internationally. It was our wish as well as the background to establish an award targeted for primary non-Japanese individuals overseas, having the equivalent gravity as the Deming Prize for Individuals.
